Are sand dollars the skeletons of a type of sea urchin as marine biologists tell us? Or are they really the currency that undersea creatures like mermaids use?
This miniature sand dollar pendant has all the features of the real thing: The slightly flying-saucer dome shape, the five-pointed starfish pattern on top, and the five holes or pores through which the urchin 'breathes'.
Antique accenting highlights the subtle radial pattern of the urchin's hairs to create a textured background that makes the polished starfish shape stand out.
p.s. In some parts of the world, sand dollars are called 'sea cookies'.
