Cuttlefish Necklace / Chris Taylor

This pendant captures the spirit and beauty of the enigmatic cuttlefish in an attractive two-toned finish. The intricately patterned mantle (muscular outer covering) of this cuttlefish is cast in antiqued pewter, while the arms, body, and underlying anatomy are rendered in antiqued brass. This pendant is not just an adornment, it is also a carefully researched educational keepsake. If you pull on the arms of this cuttlefish, its head and body pull free of its mantle, revealing its internal anatomy. The cuttlebone, gills, branchial and systemic hearts, and all of of the other organs are rendered in minute detail. Let go of the arms, and the head and mantle snap back together — via Etsy
