The Sea Otter necklace is handmade with blue, black and gold coated Japanese glass beads. It celebrates this utterly fascinating little creature which lives in Arctic waters so cold, they have to eat up to 40% of their their own body weight to remain warm- like a 10 year old sitting down to eat a 20 pound hamburger when a half pound with ships is considered a meal!
Sea Otters do three things, all inspired by the fact that they spend most of their life in frozen Arctic waters - in fact, Sea Otters can spend their entire life in water. They eat vast quantities of food to generate the heat needed to fight the cold; they groom their fur which protects them from the cold; and inevitably they must sleep. We must all sleep.
Sea Otters are in fact Weasals, the smallest members of the Weasel family, but also the smallest mammals who live in the sea.
The Sea Otter is a piece with the attitude it takes to live in freezing water and combining it a friend's initials, as well as planting 10 Mangrove trees - every Rockhopper plants 10 trees and comes with a planting certificate and gift card in a fabric bag - is a wonderful gift that gives back to the planet as well as being personalised and quite unique.
If you really want to splash out there is also the Sea Otter Anklet!
Charms which come with the Sea Otter include:-
- the Arctic Fox (18K gold filled)
- the Sea Star (18K gold plated)

The Sea Otter is made by hand and made to order. The combinations of blue, black and gold coated Japanese glass beads are unique to each band although the style of each is the same.
