This Small Box Jelly Bracelet is a stand-out. The organic box jelly’s four flowing legs wraps around a heavy leather cord for a bold and empowering look. These jellies suit a wide range of outfits, and are a perfect way to express your unique style. This bracelet is subtle enough to hide under a sleeve, but is like wearing little piece of art and goes beautifully on bare arms.

The box jelly’s grace in the water belies their true predatory nature – own that power! (read more below)

Box Jellies

Box jellies in Hawaii, aka Alatina alata, is a Pacific and Atlantic Ocean species of box jellyfish, sometimes referred to as a sea wasp.  They are nearly transparent, and extremely difficult to spot before they deliver their sting. These predators are well known in Hawaii – a few days each month most of us steer clear of the water to avoid them.  But there is much to respect about them! With 20 simple eyes and 4 fully functioning eyes (with retinas!), and a rare ability to swim directionally, they are unusual amongst jellies in that they actively HUNT their prey. The neurotoxin they employ is not as painful nor as deadly as Australia’s infamous Irukandji, but it can still do quite a bit of damage, even to an adult. Read more about them in our May 2015 blog.
