Opercularella Hydrozoan PendantRegular price 99.00 €
The Opercularella pendant in solid sterling silver is inspired by a drawing by Ernst Haeckel depicting the polypoid stage of a Hydrozoan marine animal. These strange animals form colonies connected by long tubes. The different shapes on the stalks represent different biological functions of the animal including feeding, mating and incubating young. Many hydrozoans also have a free-swimming medusoid life stage which resembles a small jellyfish.
The pendant is approximately 2.6cm (1 in) wide by 4 cm (2.8 in) long.
The pendant is 3D printed in solid sterling silver, bronze or brass and finished with a sterling silver, gold-plated silver or rose gold-plated silver anchor chain to match.
