Sea Urchins :: Ouriços do Mar

The sea urchins earrings are a new series from the Sea Creatures collection. I was inspired by their delicate patterned shells and by their habitat, kelp forests. Kelp forests are mostly located in the shallow waters of temperate coastal areas, like Europe, and they provide shelter to many species including sea urchins, star fish, snails, lobsters and crabs. Kelp itself is a very large alga that can grow up to 80 meters and they produce oxygen.

The sea urchins feed on kelp and move on the seabed using tube feet that come out of the spines. To make the earrings I decided not to include the spines. I have explored a translucent base textured and lightly coloured in soft pastel tones. They look simple and you can wear them with any outfit. I hope that you enjoy them!

Os ouriços do mar são a nova série da Sea Creatures Collection. Inspirei-me nos padrões delicados das conchas e no seu habitat, as florestas de laminárias. As florestas de laminárias existem nas áreas costeiras de zonas temperadas, como a Europa, e dão abrigo a muitas espécies incluindo ouriços do mar, estrelas do mar, búzios, lagostas e caranguejos. As laminárias são uma espécie de alga que pode crescer até aos 80 metros e produzem oxigénio.

Os ouriços dos mar alimentam-se de laminárias e movem-se no fundo marinho usando pés tubulares que saiem das espinhas. Para fazer os brincos decidi não incluir as espinhas.  Explorei uma base translucente com textura e suavemente colorida em tons pastel. Tem um aspecto simples e podem ser usados com vários tipos de roupa. Espero que gostem!
