The Dailyatia earrings represent the C1 sclerite of Dailyatia helica, a small shelly fossil (SSF) of the clade Tommotiida originating from the late Cambrian period. Small shelly fossils are a diverse group of mineralized fossils representing the ancestors of marine invertebrates like snails and sea urchins. While some SSFs are an intact version of the original organism, most represent only a fragment of the marine creatures they once were. In the case of Dailyatia helica, one organism consisted of 30 of the intricate, grooved, helical-shaped structures that I've recreated as an earring.

The earrings are available in solid sterling silver, finished with nickel-free sterling silver, and are ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.
