Sea Urchin Facts Vol. 3

It has been a while since I shared sea urchin facts, you can see Vol. 1 and 2 here.

Sea urchins are sexually reproducing organisms.  First millions of eggs are released by the females and they unite and fuse with the sperms released by the males.  The unification of the jelly-coated egg and the tiny sperm usually occurs outside the female’s body; however in some rare cases the fertilization will take place within the female’s body.  Once the fertilization of the gametes occurs, a larva is formed.  This larva is also known as a pluteus.  The sex of the larva is impossible to distinguish until it itself begins to release either eggs or sperms during its adulthood. The time that adult sea urchins start reproducing is during the ages of 2-5 years. (source:

The image above shows the growth and development of the sea urchin, Lytechinus pictus. These sea urchins are found off the coast of California. After a few days the embryo will gastrulate and form a primitive digestive system (early prism stage). At this stage ciliated bands are formed that allow the larva to form feeding currents by which to concentrate particles in the water for ingestion. As the larva develops the structure becomes more complicated and larval "arms" are generated to aid in locomotion and feeding (pluteus stage larvae). Eventually this feeding larva will grow and develop enough so that it can metamorphose into a juvenile sea urchin and begin to look like the sea urchin most people are familiar with (i.e., a pin cushion). (source of text and above image: Douglaspace)

We sometimes find tiny sea urchins, through natural selection of storms and strong currents, but also eaten by other sea animals only a small portions survive to adulthood, but that is how mother nature works.

Bliss and Blessings

When the weather allows we always go out for a nice Sunday Brunch on Sunday with a friend. It is kind of a ritual for quite some time.
The places we go to eat are a bit out of town, closer to nature.

With birds staring at us while we are eating :)

Lush greens and forests are the way to the beaches which are of course our destination.

We enjoy the sun, fresh air and calmness but always do some exercise by bending a whole bunch of times to collect treasures.

We had the beach to ourselves this Sunday.

Better yet we found an incredible amount of small green urchins, yaaay! We had our green sea urchin earrings not in stock for about 2,5 years as we did not have the right urchins and mother nature was not giving any. Now we can finally remake them, this is really rare to find so many and especially in this size :)

Our Creative Space...

Now that Christmas shopping season is approaching (not so much yet as the elections are of course a scarier issue) we are making ornaments. We like to make a few new types every season, they are always in small editions which makes it fun to make and more special for those who buy them :)

This year we actually made them even more special by making our own handmade tassels! They are so much richer and fuller than the ready bought ones, making them look just way prettier :)

This is done with a fringe maker. After Mum winds the yarn, thread etc around it, I sew it several times with the sewing machine making a fringe. Then I round it up to make it a tassel with some hand sewing and a bead cap or beads for a pretty finishing touch.

We are now working on some iridescent and shiny tassels for some extra festive ornaments :)

Caretta Caretta

Not far from our town is a smaller town in an amazing bay called Dalyan.

Yesterday I made a necklace inspired by this place. Beside its obvious beauty it is especially know for being the beach where every Summer about 2000 Loggerhead Sea turtles (Caretta caretta) lay their eggs. The hatching of the eggs is a big attraction and there are many volunteers to keep the beaches safe for them but also to check for wounded turtles.

I made the necklace with large pieces of Variscite stone resembling the bay, and a vintage sterling silver sea turtle with moving petals and feet.

There is a sea turtle research, rescue and rehabilitation center where people from all over the world come to volunteer passionately, their website is DeKamer (in English).

I'm very happy how the necklace turned out, it really feels like a piece of home for me :)

Dalyan has also huge and ancient grave tombs carved out in the mountains and is about an hour drive from us, the entire Mediterranean coast is full with amazing bays and beaches with loads of history too.

The necklace is available at Star of the East, and if you ever decide to visit, let us know :)
