Set of Ten Sea Urchin Spines
Our Sea Urchin Spines come in a range of colours including chocolate brown, deep purple, khaki green, burnt orange and warm caramel. They feature a number of white horizontal stripes around them and most have a terracotta tip. They have a very matte finish and are reminiscent of a stick of chalk. The sea urchin spines in our collection come in a range of thicknesses and lengths and in your set of 10 you will be given a good mixture of all the colours and sizes we have available.
Mindful Sourcing of Shells and Marine Life:
We support the company that supports the oceans. My supplier collects shells that are abundant, commercial-grade shells. The shells we sell have originally been collected for food or are the by-product of licensed fishing and aquaculture operations. This means we get to share and enjoy shells that would otherwise be waste.
I source my shells from a company that are mindful of their overseas harvesters and use fair trade practices. They have voluntarily committed to an industry Stewardship Action Plan to adapt responsibly to working in a marine environment and also contribute to scientific research projects and participate in government initiatives. In November 2008, the fishery was presented internationally as an example of the world’s best practice in ecologically sustainable fisheries management.
