coralline algae pendant


⚭ fine silver (.999) pendant, shown next to U.S. dime for scale
⚭ optional sterling silver (.925) bead chain with choice of round or faceted (sparkly) beads

I made this pendant from the impression of a delicate spine washed ashore at Moonstone Beach on the Central Coast of California. At first I didn't know WHAT creature might have left such a skeleton, and then I learned it was a PLANT who had left such a skeleton!

It's algae! There is calcium in the ocean, and this otherwise-soft-and-tender little water plant uses that calcium to build itself a spine.

I will never *ever* get over the fact that a sea plant has vertebrae.
