In order to bring attention to the wonderous maritime creatures that we have named our label after, we name all of our jewellery pieces after squid and octopuses and want to tell you about why they are so cool.
The Cyanea octopus, also known as the blue-ringed octopus, is one of the smallest octopus species, with a mantle length of just 5-10 cm.
Despite its size, the Cyanea octopus is highly venomous, with a sting that can be fatal to humans. The venom is contained in blue rings that become more prominent when the octopus is threatened.
It is found in tropical and subtropical waters around the world, and is often found in shallow reefs and tide pools.
Our jewellery pieces are mailed out, wrapped in beautiful vintage art catalogues, posters, or magazines that we collect and recycle. Using resources that are already out there strains our environment less, and also allows us to create unique and individual packaging so every order is it's own experience.
Our jewellery pieces are delivered in a jewellery box which you can use to keep your jewellery safe or you can reuse it to keep other small objects, like cool stones or seashells from a holiday, tiny love letters, or anything that brings you joy.
Squïd Studios was founded in 2023 by Anna, Natha and Pia. The brand celebrates sustainability, inclusion and diversity while creating empowering pieces.
Eco-friendly: Squïd embraces a circular philosophy. Even though your items should last a lifetime, they offer repair services and even host free repair & upcycling workshops in Vienna and Munich. Keep an eye out on their events page!
They use recycled Sterling silver, freshwater pearls and deadstock fabrics.
Fair & local production: The brand started with only handmade pieces handmade by the founder team. If you're ordering from Germany, the pieces will be made by Natha, while Anna makes the pieces for the Austrian market. However, they recently increased their range with jewellery made in italy. The clothing is made by Farhan in a small atelier in Vienna.
