Abyss - #79-80: the sea urchin backbone set

One of my favorite local jewelry supply stores caries a drool-worthy amount of beads made out of bone, antler, glass, and other of my favorite materials.  They also carry sea urchin backbones and I have seen some lovely jewelry made from this.  I wanted to incorporate them into a necklace and earring set while paying homage to the sea.  I did so by also adding fossilized shark teeth, plastic pearls, and by using a sea green wire, ribbon, and o-rings for accents.

The backbones and shark teeth were bought already drilled.  The square and round bead charms are amazonite and riverstone. 


I have redesigned #47 and #48.
