Miniature Urchin Station Necklace



The Miniature Urchin Station Necklace is a class act. Long and flowing, the lovely necklace is designed so it doesn’t constantly travel around your neck. The five urchins are suspended in thin chain for an elegant way to finish your outfit.

Miniature Heart Urchins

Most of us have seen heart urchins (aka sea mice), those puffy paper-thin shells that look like blown-up sand dollars (see image below). Miniature Heart Urchins are actually tiny cousins to the far bigger heart urchin, and only ever attain about 1 cm long. We find them in sandy patches in the reef, many of them with holes drilled in them by predators! They are hollow and bubble-like, also known as ‘urchin tests’. As with all of the silver shells we use at ‘Alohi Kai, we only use found-shells that are empty and unoccupied before taking them from the sea – we would never knowingly harm a creature that grew or uses them!


Our Miniature Urchin Station Necklace features 5 sterling silver miniature urchins soldered into a thin sterling silver chain. These shells are found empty on the reef; we never take things alive from the sea. Molding these perfect, paper-thin shells (called ‘tests’) can be tricky! We cast each shell, and carefully solder them into a long elegant chain.
