putty brown sea urchin spine chunky gemstone earrings green jasper
Tribal beachy earrings! Exotic sea urchin spines dangle from a large chunky gemstone.
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. Colors range from a pale putty beige to putty purple brown, sometimes with thin white stripes. They're brittle when dropped.
This listing is for the darker putty purple brown. The spines in this picture are 1-1/4" (30mm) long, towards the shorter end of what I have available. Every pair of earrings will vary slightly in color and size. Lighter putty beige spines are in a separate listing:
25x16mm faceted chunky gemstone is on top. These are variegated olive jasper also known as yellow turquoise. 10mm gray-green marble is on either side of the bead caps.
From the top of the no-nickel no-lead made-in-USA ear wires, these earrings are 4-1/4" (11cm) long. They can be made up to 1" longer by using a longer sea urchin spine; or 1/2" shorter by using 4mm beads instead of 10mm. Also, the length will vary depending on which gemstone you choose (see below.) The earrings can be changed to clip or screw back findings for non-pierced ears.
Matching necklace is shown in the second picture and available for separate purchase in this shop:

The earrings are even prettier in person than on the web. I've gotten lots of compliments about them.
