Starfish Poem~ Loren Eiseley

One day an old man was walking along the beach. It was low tide, and the sand was littered with thousands of stranded starfish that the water had carried in and then left behind. The man began walking very carefully so as not to step on any of the beautiful creatures. Since the animals still seemed to be alive, he considered picking some of them up and putting them back in the water, where they could resume their lives.

The man knew the starfish would die if left on the beach's dry sand but he reasoned that he could not possibly help them all, so he chose to do nothing and continued walking.

Soon afterward, the man came upon a small child on the beach who was frantically throwing one starfish after another back into the sea. The old man stopped and asked the child, "What are you doing?"

"I'm saving the starfish," the child replied.

"Why waste your time?... There are so many you can't save them all so what does is matter?" argued the man.

Without hesitation, the child picked up another starfish and tossed the starfish back into the water... "It matters to this one," the child explained.

I came across this poem some time ago and just loved it! I have many friends on facebook who do animal rescue and it reminded me that you can't save every one, but you can make a huge difference to that one.

Dedicated to all those I admire in rescue!

I've hand stamped and soldered a sterling silver starfish on to a 30 x 40 mm sterling silver disc and added some hammer detail. The whole piece is oxidized and strategically polished to leave a nice patina around the starfish and on the hammering detail.

I've added beautiful caribbean blue apatite rondelles to either side of the disc and finished the chain off with a beautiful blue chalcedony briolette.

The wrist is extendable from a 6 1/2 - 7 1 /2 inch wrist.
