Part of our Nature Collection, these Sea Urchin or Kina Shell earrings are made with pieces of real shell.

All of my shells are hand-picked by me (or my husband), while we're out beachcombing. Only completely empty shells are collected, and even though they were empty when picked up, the shells have been thoroughly soaked, scrubbed clean with a soft brush, sun dried for a week and finally coated with a clear acrylic coating to help strengthen the shell. The back of the shells is white.

These particular shells were still whole when found at the base of the cliffs along the beach walk to Army Bay in January 2021. Often the delicate sea urchin shells break during the cleaning process, and instead of throwing them away, the fragments have been turned into various size earrings.

Earring drop: 3.3cm
Earring width: 1.5cm
Ear wires: Platinum Shepherd's hooks
Shell measurement: approximately 1.5cm wide by 1.6cm high

The colour, pattern and edge on each of the earrings may differ slightly due to the natural variations in the shells, but they are very similar in shape and size, as seen in the photos.

All our earrings are handmade with love and care. These earrings are a unique set as no two shells will ever have the exact same colour, shape or pattern.
