Sponge 'Ascilla' Earrings

Regular price$184.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.


These earrings are inspired by the marine sponge, Ascilla. Ascilla is a tubular branched sponge currently known as Leucoselenia.  Multiple sponge stalks are anchored by one common root to the ocean floor. The stalks take up water through microscopic holes on their surface and expel it through a hole on the end of the stalk, like a mass of fire hoses. Ernst Haeckel described it as “a racemose cane, whose slender stalks have the shape of a graceful urn.”

The earring is 3 cm (1.2 in) long below the loop, and each earrings weighs 4.8 g.

The earrings are available in 14K gold plated brass or sterling silver, finished with nickel-free sterling silver or gold plated silver hooks to match, and are ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.
