This is a fabulous example of a Cambrian period black Utah trilobite, when western Utah was covered by a shallow sea. Trilobites belong to an extinct class of marine organisms called Trilobita, referring to the three-part latitudinal and longitudinal shape of a trilobite's exoskeleton. More than 500 different trilobite species have been found across Utah. This is a very distinct, large black trilobite, paired with a beautiful black Mabe pearl, which is actually a cultured blister pearl, grown against the inside of the mollusk shell, and allowing layers of lustrous nacre to develop. I backed the pearl and trilobite with 24 gauge sheet sterling silver, and set them both in serrated sterling silver bezel. The hanger is coiled half round sterling silver to create a hanging loop for Sarah to string the beads through. Sarah used a variety of trilobite and shell shapes, and pulled out the lustrous and matte blacks of the centerpiece as well as contrasting colors. She used many sterling silver spacer and cap beads, as well as ammonite shaped larger sterling silver accent beads to add to the sparkle. There are Czech glass trilobite shaped beads, which were cast from actual trilobites. The other beads include rutilated quartz, smoky quartz, cultured pearls, hematite, Swarovski crystal, and Czech glass. The easy-to-use sterling silver clasp is a hook and loop style. This necklace is 21 inches long. The centerpiece pendant is 2 1/2 inches long, by 1 1/4 inch wide. The available earrings repeat the Czech glass trilobites, along with Swarovski crystal, pearls, and sterling silver with a 1 1/4 inch length. This is an elegant piece, great with casual or formal wear; and will definitely command attention!
