One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, "What are you doing?"
The youth replied, "Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them back, they'll die."
"Son," the man said, "don't you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can't make a difference!"
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said "I made a difference for that one."

For years the story of the Starfish Thrower has been told. The versions have been varied and adapted, but the message has remained the same. Share the message of hope with someone through a gift of the starfish necklace, or wear the starfish yourself and show the world that you too are making a difference.

The 11mm sterling silver starfish floats along a delicate yet sturdy 1mm sterling silver chain. The starfish design is 3D and on the front and back of the starfish. I will hand finish the chain with a lobster claw clasp and sterling silver beads.

The necklace comes in a 16 inch length but I will make it any length, up to 19 inches, at no extra charge. Please specify in the message box at checkout. Custom lengths over 19 inches are also available for a nominal additional fee. Please contact me with your needs and I can create a custom listing for you.

All items come boxed and bowed and ready for gift giving. A copy of the starfish story will be attached to the inside the lid of the gift box to share with the recipient. Please specify in the message box if you prefer NOT to have the story as part of the gift box.
