Editors' Picks: Our Favorite Sea Creatures

by Stephanie Madewell

Jul 19, 2013

Explore unusual finds inspired by three mesmerizing inhabitants of the deep: narwhals, sharks and jellyfish.

There's probably some kind of personality assessment you can make based on a person's favorite sea creature. Apparently, we Etsy editors are a bit of a dangerous lot: Aleksa likes the mysterious, long-tusked narwhal, I'm drawn to the sleekness of sharks, and Alison's pick is the iridescent jellyfish. Each is best admired from a safe distance, be it a dock, bathysphere or couch (just got to love all those undersea TV specials). Scroll on for a glimpse of our themed collections and let us know in the comments: what's your favorite sea creature?
