Sea Urchins have always held a special place in my heart. They are the thing I look for perhaps more than anything else whenever I go to the beach. Maybe it’s because the chances of finding one near where I am are slim maybe it’s because the chances of finding one still intact are even slimmer. I think it has more to do with the perfection of the radiating texture coming from the center - how does Nature know how to create such perfection over and over again?
I also love that this strong outer shell (the creatures armor) has tiny perforations in it making it both strong but also vulnerable. To me this has always pointed me to the wisdom of protecting our hearts while keeping them open.
This piece is a beautiful size and makes a very impressive pendant. Wearing it near your heart brings this wisdom of nature right to where it loves to be.
