I chose the moon jelly fish as I regularly see them on local beaches and I know they don’t sting humans. Something I am very grateful for while swimming in the sea! They are about the size of a plate, and recognisable by the four circles visible through the translucent white bell. These four circles are reproductive organs located at the bottom of the stomach, and they are normally purple in colour. Moon jellies are common in UK seas and are often found washed up on shore. Jellyfish are 95% water and have no brain, blood or heart.
I came along to an Edinburgh Shoreline workshop where I learned how to make eco-jewellery from the recycled inner tube of bicycles. Great fun and great learning. And delighted with the homemade jellyfish earrings I can now proudly wear.
