Sea Urchin Box

Sea Urchin Box

I have a strange fascination with sea urchins. One of my favorite things as a kid was when my mom would let me play with the sea urchins she used in her developmental biology class. They feel very odd when they walk across your hand, and as prickly as they look, they don't hurt. When they passed away, their shells would dry out and the spines fall off, leaving this delicate looking husk behind. Here someone has used the beauty of the sea urchin's shell to make a box to hold your precious treasure, or just adorn your favorite table.
