"Otolith" Bone Earrings - Feathers of the Sea

Published Mar 29 2016 in Custom Pieces

Neil requested a custom set of earrings for his partner Julia. He had collected these beautiful "otolith" bones from the Yelloweye snapper, caught in Haida Gwaii off the coast of BC, just south of Alaska. These fragile bones looked like delicate feathers or angel wings.  After various attempts at wire wrapping and drilling holes (luckily Neil had a quite a collection of these bones), I decided that the safest and securest way was to use an epoxy on a set of earrings from my current collection. Well, Julia loved them, and now she requested a special custom set of earrings for her friend...stay tuned for the story behind those. Thank you Neil for entrusting your beautiful artifacts to me.
