A gorgeous necklace, with a design that was cast from an urchin the designer found on Treasure Beach in Jamaica. This is a perfect example of a found object transforming into a stunning piece of art. The piece is handcrafted of reclaimed sterling silver that has been slightly oxidized, to give it a subtle glow. The silver urchin hangs on a 16-inch chain with a handmade clasp.
