Reading about the Kraken in books, I remember thinking what a fearsome creature it must have been, all arms and teeth. Then I learned how amazing the octopus really is, so intelligent and able to adapt in remarkable ways and that brought about a new love of the Kraken. I love how the octopus can symbolize many different things from intelligence to creativity and unpredictability. Let’s all try to be a little more like the octopus and be unpredictably intelligent when we wear these earrings!
“Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee.”
-Alfred Lord Tennyson
