Hinged Sea Urchin Earrings

SKU: SE-1076

If you’ve ever spent time padding barefoot along a beach seeking seashells, then you probably know the singular glee of discovering a sea urchin shell. 


With the sand between your toes and the sound of ocean waves breaking in your ears, you probably weren’t thinking about the rich history we share with these shells—how people have treasured them for centuries and have worn them as protective amulets since medieval times. Of course, I didn’t know any of that in my early beachcombing days. All I knew was that whenever I was lucky enough to find one, I couldn’t stop running my fingers over its bumpy surface or staring at its symmetrical, otherworldly patterns.


Now that I’ve figured out a way to uniquely adapt sea urchin shells to my silver casting process, I’ve fallen in love with that amazing texture all over again. And I hope you like it too.


I cast the discs in sterling silver and oxidized them to emphasize the depth and intricacy of the sea urchin texture. The hinges give these earrings great movement. They’re the perfect everyday earrings—comfortable, fun, effortless. Available in two lengths.


To really amp up your look, these earrings look absolutely spectacular with my five-disc sea urchin necklace! <<link needed>>
