She sells sea shells by the sea shore…these little cuties are inspired by my childhood spent on the beaches in Perth.
No matter the season or weather, keep those beach feels going all year round with these delightful sea shell earrings. These studs are made of mother of pearl like acrylic and finished off with a pearl detail. They are perfect as your everyday wear or you can dress them up for a cute date!
These pretty earrings also make a great gift for nature lovers and ocean life obsessed humans.
Super cute and light, this ocean jewellery is handmade in Australia, where you can collect sea shells if they are not occupied by living creatures (some restrictions apply).
Story Behind the Design
I've never really been a fan of pearls (as much as I love how they look)...and traditionally they've been considered bad luck in my family - not the least for the oyster they came from! Instead I thought: why not make a piece that evokes the classic charm and style of a pearl...without manhandling a mollusc to get it!
Pearls are a really interesting type of gemstone, especially since they aren't gemstones at all. Rather, they're an oysters natural defence system against irritants and parasites entering the molluscs shell. By covering the irritant with layers of aragonite and conchiolin (coincidentally - what the molluscs shell is made of) which together forms a substance called nacre...otherwise known as mother of pearl!
These handmade earrings are made from laser cut acrylic.
