Steampunk Jewelry - The Octopus


Octopus Abalone Earrings


Steampunk Jewelry - The Octopus

You see them everywhere, octopus are all the rage and it has a little bit to do with Steampunk & Gothic jewelry.

Did you know these little facts about the octopus (source Wiki):

The octopus have two eyes and four pairs of arms. An octopus has a hard beak, with its mouth at the center point of the arms. They have no internal or external skeleton. Octopuses are among the most intelligent and behaviorally flexible of all invertebrates.
 
The octopus inhabits many diverse regions of the ocean, including coral reefs, pelagic waters, and the ocean floor. They have numerous strategies for defending themselves against predators, -  the expulsion of ink, the use of camouflage and deimatic displays, their ability to jet quickly through the water, and their ability to hide. An octopus trails its eight arms behind it as it swims. All octopuses are venomous, but only one group, the blue-ringed octopuses, is known to be deadly to humans.
