Sea Urchin Necklace with Onyx Stones
Seashell necklace in gold-plated with onyx stones from the Sea Urchin Collection. This collection is inspired by a very special place, the furthest north-east corner of Colombia, the Guajira peninsula… almost at the end of the world :) There I discovered this interesting creature for the first time, the "test" or shell of the sea urchin. I was immediately captivated by its structure full of symmetries, movement and nuances and wanted to work with it. Just some years later came the idea to transform this form into jewelry. To do that I had find first the very little ones.

Chain with faceted onyx stones
The necklace closes with a toggle fastener. We manufacture our toggle fasteners individually ourselves. They are safe and very easy to use. Due to the ideal ratio of the hole diameter and the length of the toggle, this fastener cannot open on its own. As a delicate and decorative element, the clasp enriches, far beyond necessity and function, the design of the chain as a piece of jewelry.
Ø sea urchin approx. 17 mm.
Chain length: 45 cm
After making a silicon-casting of a real sea urchin test, all sea urchins of this size are being casted from this one mould. The process is called "lost wax casting" so the final jewelry piece is made completely of sterling silver. All jewelry pieces are handmade in our atelier in Berlin. Each piece comes in a black Cirer jewelry box.
