Starfish Jewelry

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the "meaning" behind the starfish? To be honest I was thinking that using Starfish at a beach wedding wouldn't be a unique idea. But when I was looking at the jewelry on etsy.com one of the sellers had a poem posted with a starfish necklace . It was titled "The Starfish Poem"...after reading I knew that I wanted to incorporate starfish somehow. Well I found my jewelry...starfish necklace, earrings, and bracelet (which by the way I was having the hardest time selecting) and I would have to say it was because of that poem. But I was just wondering if you ladies know something about the starfish that I might not know.

The Starfish Poem

Once upon a time there was a wise man

 

who used to go to the ocean to do his

 

writing. He had a habit of walking on the

 

beach before he began his work.

 

 

 

One day he was walking along the shore.

 

As he looked down the beach, he saw a

 

human figure moving like a dancer. He

 

smiled to himself to think of someone

 

who would dance to the day.

 

 

 

So he began to walk faster to catch up.

 

As he got closer, he saw that it was a

 

young man and the young man wasn't

 

dancing, but instead he was reaching

 

down to the shore, picking up something

 

and very gently throwing it into the ocean.

 

 

 

As he got closer he called out, "Good

 

morning! What are you doing?"

 

 

The young man paused, looked up and replied,

 

"Throwing starfish in the ocean."

 

 

 

"I guess I should have asked, why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?"

 

 

"The sun is up and the tide is going out. And if I don't throw them in they'll die."

 

 

"But, young man, don't you realize that there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it. You can't

 

possibly make a difference!"

 

 

The young man listened politely. Then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it

 

into the ocean, past the breaking waves and said - "It made a difference for that one."
