Sculpted Octopus Ear Cuff


An edgy ear cuff for tako (octopus) lovers! Organic and exotic-looking, wear one or both and celebrate the intelligent and mesmerising Hawaiian Day Octopus.

He’e (octopus, tako)

In Hawaii, octopuses are called he’e (in Hawaiian, with a glottal stop between the two e’s) and tako (the Japanese word for it) and if we are lucky, we see them when diving. Deeply intelligent, they have multiple ways to defend themselves – black ink, camouflage, even squirting water. (There’s more about them in our dec 2014 blog) We enjoy their company on dives for both playfulness and inventiveness – even when very small these wonderful creatures will pull themselves up to size to intimidate a photographer!

Sculpted Octopus Ear Cuffs are small-scale sculptures of an octopus leg caressing your ear. Each side is slightly different. Light, and very comfortable, each cuff is hand-sculpted and fabricated with attention to detail. We want these to be as comfortable as possible so we’ve introduced cuff sizes (see last image). Measure where indicated, and choose the size. Most people will fit a Medium, but all ears are a little different!
