Designed by Nancy Cain.
This Sea Urchin pendant uses an engineered beaded ’shell’ that combines circular and flat peyote in one stitching technique. Sparkly Swarovski 4mm bicone crystals embellish each arch and encircle the centre hole. Swarovski 12mm crystal pearls representing the sea fill the shell between the arches. The pendant suspends from a strap of alternating 2-drop/1-drop tubular peyote making a softly squared rope.
