Lora Richardson - Earring Triple Crinoid Drop

Regular price $25.00

Crinoids are marine animals, related to the starfish, sea urchins and sea cucumbers that lived at the bottom of the Great Lakes when the dinosaurs roamed.   They had a long stalk with a mouth at the top and it's the pieces of the stem, defined by a round disc shape with a hole (or filled in hole) in the middle, that are commonly found on our beaches.  

These earrings, by Lora Richardson feature three crinoids each, featuring both the ridged sides and detailed front and back of each crinoid.  And just think -- you'll be wearing a piece of history!
