This pendant depicts a female copepod, a tiny crustacean found in saltwater and freshwater environments. Depending on the species, copepods can be planktonic (floating in the water) or benthic (living in the sea bed). While some copepod mothers lay their eggs directly into the water, others carry them in sacs on their tails. My design is inspired by the order Cyclopoida, named because they have only a single large eye like the Greek giant cyclops. If you would prefer the male copepod, it is also available (just message me).
This pendant is 2 cm long (0.79 inches) below the loop.
The pendant is 3D printed in 14K gold plated brass or sterling silver, finished with a 45 cm/18 inch long gold plated silver chain, or silver chain to match*, and is ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.
*While a 45 cm/18 inch fits most, other chain lengths are available. At checkout, write a note indicating your preference.
