Etsy.com is home to famed seller, OctopusMe, who is known for her unique designs made from real octopuses.
Here's what she has to say about her handmade octopus jewelry:
Life on earth began in the Sea. Organisms from every major group can still be linked to those underwater. These beautiful and amazing creatures should be honored and celebrated...
The Octopus is a symbol of Transformation and Regeneration. Because of its reputation of changing colors to match its backgrounds, the octopus is also known as the Master of Disguise. Octopuses also have the power to regenerate. If an octopus loses an arm in battle it can grow a new one. Some can even detach and arm to distract predators and then grow another! Don't mess with the octopus because they can stun or kill you with one poisonous bite. The poison is called tetrodotoxin which is the same as Fugu, the puffer fish served in Japan. So treat your Octopus with Love!
The octopus used in my jewelry is sushi grade. Items have been hand cast in Sterling Silver unless specified otherwise :)
