Sea Urchin Ear Studs: Michael Michaud

The Sea Urchin studs are cast in bronze and plated in 24k. gold over silver plate and accented with apatite, peridot and pink tourmaline. The posts are 925 silver.

Sea Urchins are members of the phylum Echinodermata that also includes starfish and sea cucumbers. They have five-fold symmetry, which is called pentamerism and is easily seen in the dried shell of the urchin. They move by means of hundreds of tiny, transparent, adhesive “tube” feet and sometimes the most visible sign of life is the spines. The spines serve to protect the urchin from predators. Sea urchin “roe” is traditionally considered an aphrodisiac and is consumed either raw or briefly cooked.
