Playing in the fossil patch…

This past weekend I was playing in my fossil patch.. this is a neat little corner of my shop that I horde the pretty ancient creatures to make into jewelry (at some point in time)..

I get nitter nattered a lot though as I have been hording some of these nice little pieces for wayyyy too long..

So without further adieu.. today I’m sharing one of the pieces I’ve just posted.

Brachiopod Fossil wire wrap

It’s a Brachiopod (or Brachiopoda) which is a small invertebrate marine critter that was around in the Cambrian Period (oh about 570 Million years ago)…  This fossil is really unique as you get a three dimensional view of what this animal was really like..

I’ve wrapped it using sterling silver wire and it comes ready to wear…

Cheers!!
