This fascinating piece is cast from the sea urchins mouth. Its the skeletal structure inside the shell. Comes on a 30inch sterling silver chain with gold plated tips.
While walking I find collections of shells and these mouth structures all over the beach. The fishermen scoop this part out and eat the rest! Its a beautiful, almost prehistoric structure which I think is really unusual and a fine demonstration of nature at its finest.
Its also known as Aristotles Lantern, to find out more read my blog.
