Can you believe this fossil is millions of years old? These creatures lived in the seas when dinosaurs roamed the earth. This is a pretty specimen, as it has colors of the rainbow on one side, sort of like mother-of-pearl. The reverse side is the inside of the sliced and polished piece, showing the swirled shape of the creature. I’ve wrapped it in copper wire and soldered some prongs on it in three places to hold it securely, but simply. It measures 2” long by 1 1/2” wide, so it’s a large piece, but not heavy at all. I’ve strung it on polished black leather cord and tied a simple know at the nape of the neck. Signed with a Down in the Delta tag at the knot. This is a mixed-metal piece. I had originally applied patina to the solder joins to turn them copper colored, but when I polished it, I removed it, and I decided I liked it better this way. I’m all about mixing metals…it’s just part of my “look,” so it feels right.
