The Dailyatia lapel pin represents the C1 sclerite of Dailyatia helica, a small shelly fossil (SSF) of the clade Tommotida 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. (Reference: Skovsted, CB, Betts, MR, Topper, TT & Brock GA, Memoirs of the Association of Australasian Palaeontologists 48:1-117,2015).

The jewelry is created by 3D-printing in wax followed by metal casting in solid bronze, solid brass or solid sterling silver. The Dailyatia pin is lightly polished after casting to give the piece a smooth glossy texture. A butterfly clasp is included with the lapel pin.

To prevent waste and overstock, the jewelry is not made until you order. Please allow 3-4 weeks for printing and shipping. All items are gift-wrapped in original, recyclable Ontogenie packaging and then shipped insured by registered mail, worldwide.

The longest dimension of the head of the pin is 1.66 cm.

Frequently asked questions about Ontogenie

All of my designs are achieved by 3D-printing combined with lost wax casting. If I have the piece you want in stock, I can usually ship it the next day. If it isn't in stock, please allow 3 weeks for printing until I can ship it.
All of my pieces are gift wrapped in Ontogenie recycled paper boxes containing shredded wood and finished with twine.
