Sea Urchin Cocktail Earrings


The Story of Sea Urchin

This design is a testament to how impactful my years underwater have been.  I love the ocean, and if you do too, this might be the design for you. 

The biggest influence in my sister’s art has always been nature, and the glorious sea urchin of our youth and of Earnst Haeckel’s prints is central to our pantheon.

There is something divine about the intricate skeleton of a sea urchin.  It has a natural geometry, a royal shape, and it begs to be touched.  Who would have thought that this beauty was what you would find underneath a sea urchin’s protective spines? 

What are you hiding under your protective spines?

I think sea urchins are beautiful, but I also love to eat them.  My local sea urchins have not yet been discovered by the Japanese, so we have no idea how they should be served, but the rest of the world seems to know exactly what makes a sea urchin special.  In my twenties I went as far north as Rebun-shi in Hokkaido to eat uni, and I’ve harvested my own achinos near Folegandros, but some of the best sea urchin I’ve ever eaten was at Nobu in San Diego. I hope you have a chance to eat some soon too. It’s always worth it.

My Favorite Parts of this Design

A miniature sculpture, this design is spectacular.  Its tactile, its fun, it can be worn to a gala or to the beach, and every time you wear it, you will get compliments.  You'll find yourself touching it, fiddling, enjoying it.

Even though the inspiration for this design comes directly from nature, I tried to abstract the design to make it iconic.  I think there is a tremendous amount of beauty that can be captured with just gold and stones, and even my friends who have never seen a sea urchin skeleton love this design.

The meaning behind these earrings makes them fun to wear, and the depth and proportion bring an elegance that will make you smile.

Your Pharaoun should remind you of your favorite version of yourself.

"What I find is that in the chaos of every day, women forget themselves, their strength, their beauty, and their independence.  

I want my designs to inspire women to be their favorite version of themselves, and that starts with you honoring yourself."

- Sergio Andrés Mendoza, Designer

Every Woman Should Know Her Ring Size

Unsure of your ring size?  It can be difficult, especially because a cocktail ring can be worn on any finger. 

I created a ring sizer to help, and would be happy to send you one.
