Dolphin Tail

The dolphin tail is the last thing you view as the graceful dolphin jumps up from the ocean and then back again. These magnificent creatures plentifully inhabit the ocean around Hawaii.

The tail, which is located right behind the dorsal fin, is used for momentum. This makes the tail very muscular and strong. It is the main source of power that propels the dolphin forward and up through the water.

This enchanting pendant has been fused out of brown glass. You could also make it out of an iridescent glass which would really make it glimmer and shine.

This would make an ideal gift for a young man who appreciates marine life jewelry. Make one for the young man in your life and attach a bail so that he can wear it as a pendant.
