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.
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…
