Also described as “Drifters” or “Wanderers” Plankton are a group of organisms that rely on the winds, currents, and tides of the ocean to get from one place to another. Plankton are building the base level of the marine food web – but not only as a food source but also as a carbon sink the wellbeing of plankton is essential for a future of humanity.

Tomopteridae are a family of zooplankton. They can be found in the north sea and know to impress with their rare yellow bioluminescence. Tomopteridae are fast swimmers and are even able to manoeuvre and hunt other zooplankton. Their segmented parapodia were the source of inspiration for this Bangle.
