Sea Urchins All Around

When it comes to sea urchins, I’m all over it. Having been summer raised on Prince Edward Island I had my fair share of these wonderful beauties from the sea. So delicate. Seems that I have been seeing sea urchins all over the place this season. I can’t snatch them up fast enough.  From top: Sea Urchin Bowl from DiTerra: of the Earth, Urchin Terrarium from Anthropologie , Sea Urchin Door Knob from Anthropologie.

Don’t miss out on flaunting one of these beautiful little numbers while combing the beach. Oh so clever. Star of the East cleans each sea urchin, fills them with polyurethane foam and covers them with epoxy to make them strong and shiny. They used silver colored thread to adorn this sea urchin and a glass rhinestone in the centre to finish the piece. The ring itself is beautifully handmade of Sterling Silver (925).

Star of the East used a sterling silver bead caps to adorn this sea urchin which also adorns a beautifully handmade Sterling Silver (925) ring base.
