I found these little pumice pebbles after a storm at Niseli, a gorgeous cobble beach near our village. They probably originated in a Minoan bronze age volcanic eruption on the Greek island of Santorini, several hundred miles away and several thousand years ago.

Pumice rocks from the Santorini eruption are sometimes found on beaches in the Northern Aegean, but whether they floated here or were dispersed in the plume is not known. There is archaeological, seismological, and vulcanological evidence that the myth of Atlantis, described by Plato, is based upon the Santorini eruption.

The pumice stones have been seasculpted into softly rounded shapes and are naturally tinted in warm shades of pale pink and grey. I dipped them in a mixture of melted beeswax and natural tree resin to seal them and to bring out their colors. As a bonus it makes them smell really good. I drilled them and added a simple loop of knotted hemp to complement their organic beauty.

These pumice earrings are very lightweight due to the millions of gas bubbles trapped within them. They float so they would be great to wear swimming The pebbles measure roughly 3/4 x 1/2 inch and are attached to sterling silver findings.

When I modeled these for Makis, my beachcombing buddy, he chuckled and asked "are you a spilioanthropos? (caveperson) So I guess they are tribal. And probably the rest of my stuff too.

Your order will be packaged with the utmost care in recycled/repurposed materials. Though we endeavor to mail orders the next business day, please allow up to a month for delivery (time and the postal system move slowly in the Greek hinterlands). Typically it takes a couple of weeks for our items to arrive at their new homes.

Thank you so much for visiting our shop.
