Small Box Jelly Necklace on Leather

$195.00$299.00

 

This Small Box Jelly Necklace on Leather is one of our more popular designs. The box jelly’s four flowing legs wraps around a heavy leather cord for a look that is both graceful and elegant. Wear one alone or style it layered with a large jelly for a bolder statement. These jellies suit a truly wide range of outfits, and are a perfect piece to express your unique style. Their organic lines are a wonderful contrast with feminine dresses and flowing outfits, adds a bit of whimsy to suits, and even pairs with classic t-shirt and leather jacket. On men, the heavy black leather makes a statement for styled or casual attire.

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

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.
