While walking along the beach, a man saw thousands of starfish the tide had thrown onto the sand. Unable to return to the ocean during low tide the starfish were dying. Farther down the beach, he observed a young man picking up the starfish, one by one, and throwing them back into the water.
After watching the seemingly futile effort, the observer said, "There must be thousands of starfish on this beach. You can't possibly save enough to matter."
The young man smiled as he continued to pick up another starfish and tossed it back into the ocean. "It matters to this one," he replied.
Each necklace features a one-of-a-kind, handmade glass lampwork starfish (diameter 2") suspended on 18" of nylon and satin cord with a decorative metal clasp. Each necklace comes in a gift box and is accompanied by a card with "The Starfish Story."
