Silver and enamel urchin hook earrings
Alex Yule's collection of sea urchin jewellery was inspired by urchins collected on the beach during family holidays.
Everyone seems to love the sea urchins' aesthetically pleasing natural form and here it has been replicated by creating a mould of the original shell and casting it in solid silver to capture its memory forever. Each of these tiny silver forms is then turned into a beautiful yet durable piece of jewellery using different surface finishes such as pale turquoise enamel, oxidized silver and 18ct rose gold plating.
These turquoise enamelled silver shells are approximately 7mm across, on a hook fixing.
