His and Hers Turritella Agate

Sterling silver, Turritella agate, leather and other findings.

These are two adornment objects I made for my brother and his partner for Christmas of 2018.

Turritella agate is an interesting material: it’s an amalgamation of fossils found on the sea floor, created by countless dead snails. This mollusk mass grave is then cut, shaped, and polished into fine jewelry. Kinda morbid really.
