Biology-Inspired Accessories by Sheryl Westleigh

Looking for a gift for the biology maven in your life? How about the collector of the odd and one-of-a-kind? Specimen jar jewelry could be right up there at the top of the list. Featuring tiny cuttlefish, squid, and for the more daring, a faux fetus, these pieces will definitely set you apart from the rest of the gift-giving crowd. What’s the likelihood the intended recipient will already have a specimen jar fetus necklace? Seriously.

The specimen jar jewelry pieces are the brainchild of artist Sheryl Westleigh, under the name Noadi on Etsy. The "water" consists of clear acrylic resin, and each of the pieces within are sculpted of polymer clay. Besides the specimen jar jewelry, she also makes pendants featuring squid, octopi and other cephalopods. Great option for the aquatic animal fans out there.
