Feminine and delicate, these By The Sea earrings let you become one with nature. Sand Dollars are beautiful on their own, so I crafted a simple sterling silver ear wire for these beauties. Bring a piece of the beach to your boho chic look with this coastal jewelry.
The earrings will come on a Earth Song Jewelry earring card in a 3” square silver gift box wrapped with a ribbon!
About Sand Dollars
NOTE: The Sand Dollars are FRAGILE, so please store these earrings on their own, not mixed in with your other jewelry.
Sand Dollars are a species of extremely flattened burrowing sea urchins. When alive, they have many different colors. When they die, their external velvet-like spines fall off, which leaves just the rigid skeleton (called a "test"). Sand Dollar skeletons can become white from either natural sun bleaching, or manually using a bleach solution. Note it is illegal in the USA to take a living Sand Dollar from the beach/ocean, only dead Sand Dollars may be collected.
Mythologically, Sand Dollars are believed to be coins at the ocean's surface leftover from the lost city of Atlantis. Much like the Sand Dollar's unpredictable journey to the shore, Sand Dollars encourage the wearer to invite change and adapt to life's currents.
