tribal bone sea urchin spine statement earrings antique brass chain
Powerful tribal sea urchin spine set has so much energy, I kept wearing it and wearing it and wearing it. The set is mine, but I can make two more :-) This listing is for the earrings.
Sea urchins are a globular shaped sea creature with as many as several thousand spines. Spines are typically 1-3" (25-75mm) long depending on the species, but these are from 3 to 4-1/4" (75-110mm). I've never seen sea urchin spines this large before. Color is off-white (probably bleached) with hints of beige. They're brittle when dropped.
I wire-wrapped them randomly but securely with shiny black craft wire. I added a heavy antique brass chain to the front. From the top of the no-nickel no-lead antique brass lever back ear wires, these shamanistic earrings are 3-3/4" (95 mm) long. They can be changed to clip or screw back findings for non-pierced ears.
Matching necklace is sold separately in this shop:
The picture with the orange sweater is a little fuzzy (because an unnamed person in this house "doesn't think he needs a tripod") -- but it gives you an idea of the scale. The last picture is taken against a giant cactus because it looks cool ;-)

Most items are shipped in bubble-wrap envelopes using clean recycled bubble wrap or packaging paper. If the purchase is for a gift, just ask and I'll include a small gift box or an organza bag or a tiny Tiffany-style turquoise shopping bag.
The earrings are even prettier in person than on the web. I've gotten lots of compliments about them.
