These charming hand carved octopus earrings are a tribute to the clever cephalopod.
The octopus is perhaps most famous for having eight arms but did you know they have three hearts and blue blood? Their blood contains copper, which gives it a blue color in the same way that our iron rich blood is red. The number of fascinating facts about octopuses seems endless. If you're in love with the ocean, its radiant creatures, or cephalopods, these earrings are a must for your jewelry collection.
The material carved for this pendant is ancient fossilized mammoth ivory, which has lain buried in the permafrost for thousands of years. Fossilized mammoth ivory is a finite material and prized for its soft cream color that makes it ideal for heirloom jewelry that will be enjoyed for generations.
