Kraken necklace, sterling silver giant squid pendant with a natural blue sapphire pebble for its eye.

Our 300 or so species of squid are some of the most numerous, unusual and indeed largest creatures on Earth, with credible claims of the giant Architeuthis measuring 20m (66 ft) in length.

There can be little doubt that washed up examples of this deep water animal gave rise to myths of the monstrous Kraken that had been described by Norwegian sailors and American whalers as well as ancient writers such as Pliny the Elder and the authors of Icelandic sagas. It was once even clamed that ten British warships that had mysteriously disappeared off the coast of Newfoundland in 1782 were attacked and sunk by giant octopuses.

Only in the last few years have modern day marine biologists found and filmed a wild giant Architeuthis, where they discovered that, under the lights of their submersible, the skin of the living creature actually shines like precious metal

I hand carved my artistic interpretation of the Kraken and these pieces have been cast from it in solid sterling silver. For the creature's eye, each one has been set with a tiny pebble made of natural sapphire.

The Krakens measure 3.5cm, a little under one and a half inches, and are supplied on a waxed cord.

This piece of jewellery is supplied with a waxed cotton cord, if you would prefer to buy a chain to wear it on please visit the chains section of my shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ArgentAqua?ref=hdr_shop_menu§ion_id=19320750

Wearing a piece of Argent Aqua’s fine jewellery identifies you as someone who loves the ocean or the great outdoors. All of my silver jewellery is made from solid Sterling Silver (silver with a purity of at least 92.5%). It does not contain any lead or other harmful materials.
I do my best to insure all the raw materials I use have been sourced responsibly and I always price my work honestly.

All pieces are handmade in a small workshop in the English countryside and shipped to collectors across the world using insured & recorded post.
Typical delivery time to the US is between seven and fourteen days. Shipping usually takes longer around the holiday seasons.

    This Raven is absolutely stunning... really a smashing piece, painstakingly and beautifully (hand!) carved. Take it from me; wax carving is not easy- Adrian sure is talented. The faceted Ruby catches the light far better than in my picture and the gold sections bring a real pop of colour; stand out beautifully. Adrian has been a joy to deal with... I'd invite those considering purchase to read through a few other reviews; everyone is ecstatic with the quality of his work, that's no coincidence. I adore my little Raven, I can't wait to start wearing him... I can't recommend this seller/ shop highly enough! I'm sure I'll recieve lots of compliments thanks to my gorgeous new winged edition, and I'll send any and all interested parties your way Adrian. Thank you so much again! I'm a happy bunny!
    PS. Purchased purposely without chain
