Man O'War

I am always inspired by the ocean as well as it's creatures.  There is something truly magical and elusive about them.  My latest piece was inspired by this photo of the Man O'War Jellyfish.  Beautifully deadly.

I chose the Larimar gemstone for this design due to it's properties as well as it's gorgeous blue color.  I believe I was able to capture the liquid movement of the Man O'War by using chain and thick guage wire to create the "tentacles."

Larimar is a stone that is said to bring one closer to the ocean by opening channels of communication with ocean creatures.  It also brings peace and tranquility to the wearer.

Like a Man O'War lures it's prey, Larimar continues to lure me in with it's gorgeous blue hues and lightning-like patterns.  A perfect gemstone for this creation.
