A long, graceful necklace to wear to work or play. Whimsical enough to be playful, sinuous enough to be elegant this is a winner with most outfits.

Box Jelly

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 Box Jelly blog.
