Octopus necklace features a hammered sterling silver octopus pendant with larimar and blue topaz gemstones that sparkle and glisten. Statement necklace measures approximately 3" long and 1 1/4" wide, and comes on a 16" or 18" sterling silver chain. Very comfortable and airy, even with all of that silver! Will be sure to get attention as the hammered sterling swirly tentacles catch light. This statement necklace is truly stunning on and will definitely make you stand out from the crowd!

PLEASE NOTE: The actual larimar piece in this listing has sold, but the larimar in the necklace you receive will be just as beautiful and unique!

Larimar is exclusively found on one island in the Caribbean and is mined in only one mountainside in the world, in the Dominican Republic. Each gemstone varies in color and pattern as it is a natural stone. Each one is beautiful in it's individuality, no two are ever alike so you will truly have a one of a kind wearable art piece!

The Octopus is truly mesmerizing and chilling. With hypnotic motions it draws us in wholly. Symbolic on so many levels, it's energy speaks of complexity, mystery, insight and illusion!

This necklace design is also available in labradorite and moonstone in my shop:

All of the FantaSea designs are original copyrighted designs. Each piece in the Collection is made using the lost wax casting process. For those who love to learn about these ancient artisanal arts please see the following paragraph for more information on this magical process.

Each of my designs begins it's journey by being hand carved and sculpted in wax, or fabricated from hand forged precious metal. A mold is made of the original model or sculpture. An identical wax is obtained, from injection into this rubber mold. The wax or waxes are sprued and fused onto a base. Then a metal flask, which resembles a short length of steel pipe is put over the sprue base and the waxes. Investment (refractory plaster) is mixed and poured into the flask, filling it. It hardens, then the wax is burned out. Precious Metal is melted in a crucible, then poured carefully into the shell, filling in the negative space where the wax once was through the sprue. Once filled and cooled, the shell is hammered or sand-blasted away, releasing the rough casting. The sprues, which are also created in metal, are cut off, and the newly cast piece is sanded and polished until it's perfect!

Made in the US Virgin Islands with love...
