Resembling beads on a string, these earrings were inspired by the foraminifera fossil species 'Leptohalysis'. The design is based on the species Leptohalysis scottii, a benthic foraminifera identified by Dr. Sarita Camacho from samples collected from the Guadiana River Estuary of Portugal. Foraminifera are amoeboid protists that form complex calcium carbonate-containing shells.
These elegant earrings are 3 cm long below the loop and each earring weighs 2g.
The earrings are available in solid sterling silver or bronze, finished with nickel-free sterling silver or rose gold plated silver hooks to match, and are ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.
