Fossilized Ivory and Rainbow Moonstone Jelly Fish Necklace
Perhaps the most beautiful and otherworldly among the sea dwellers, the jellyfish takes many different sizes, shapes, and colors depending on its type. Its delicate and deadly tentacles sting its prey, though many jellyfish are harmless to humans. They dance along the currents or propel themselves with their bell-like bodies, creating ephemeral shapes and patterns in the water.
Our jellyfish necklace design is probably one of our most intricate and unique assemblies. This jelly's tentacles are represented in iridescent rainbow moonstone and sterling silver beading—flexible and tactile accents. The remaining tentacles are made from solid sterling silver with an articulating joint at the pendant top, allowing these tentacles to move as well. The entire effect is almost lifelike and a truly singular piece of jellyfish jewelry.
The jelly's bell is carved from fossilized walrus ivory, a luminous material that is some 500 to 3,000 years old. The earth has colored this natural ivory soft creamy caramel to cocoa colors, and it is valued across the world for the quality it lends to jewelry and fine artisan crafts. Native peoples gather our fossilized walrus ivory after erosion or the tides unearths it, trading and selling it as they have for centuries.
This jellyfish pendant is sure to turn heads, and it is the ideal piece for anyone who responds to the jelly fish's go-with-the-flow grace and lifestyle.
