I love the idea of contrasting alternative materials.

Case in point ... A summer trip to the beach compelled me to haul out my stash of shark fossils - fragments of fossilized bones and teeth from the SW Florida coast. Their unusual shapes and textures inspired me to make a whole batch of fine silver pmc accent beads ... pinched and poked and smeared and nudged into shapes reminiscent of the fossils. The luscious colors of the sea reminded me of another stash of ancient Roman glass beads.

I call the look Urban Primitive ... rustic yet refined, elegant but rugged, the ancient world meets the 21st century. Amazing to think that the Roman glass is about 2000 years old, but the fossils are even older ... so incredible and so beautiful together.

This pair of dangles are about 2" from the base of my handmade sterling earwires. The Roman glass beads have a beautiful ancient patina ... crusty and pitted not unlike the black fossilized bone shards ... and are accented with small pinched discs of fine silver metal clay.

Exceptionally cool, decidedly unique, minimal and distinct, these Urban Primitive earrings will arrive tucked into an eco-friendly pillow box cushioned with paper excelsior and indigo tissue paper, scented with rose petals all tied up with recycled sari silk ribbon.

Ready to go as a splendid gift for yourself or an unexpected gift for someone special. And as always ... beautifully crafted, spirited, jewelry for your soul.
