Dorset Ammonite Drop Earrings
Cast from a perfect Ammonite fossil found on one of our trips to Charmouth beach near Lyme Regis in Dorset.
Lyme Regis fossils were made famous through the work of Mary Anning in the early 19th century. Mary Anning used to collect fossils and shells from the beach between Lyme Regis and Charmouth (she is the subject of the tongue twister “She sells sea shells…”) and discovered the first identified Ichthyosaur skeleton, as well as plesiosaur and pterosaur skeletons. Regretfully much of Mary’s work was only fully recognised after her death.
Part of our Water collection inspired by our love for the ocean, coastlines and fossils.
