Ag Fossil Fixed StarFish


The Fixed StarFish ... slowly over millions of years the arms of the star broke free. 

Hand Carved and Cast Sterling Silver Medallion.  AG is the element silver on the periodic table.  Silver Fossils signify our connection to prehistoric life.  The building blocks of all living things on this planet.  My early designs started a a hand fabricated fossil fish.  In search of more realistic details...I was drawn to jewelers wax.  The collection is now mostly hand carved & cast in sterling silver.  Reminding us that life is wondrous and we can all leave an impression. This collection comes with a .925 lobster clasp as a bail.  It enables the wearer to take it easily on and off different chains, hook onto keys or zippers. 

The Starfish Story

A young man is walking along the ocean and see a beach on which thousand and thousands of starfish have washed ashore.  Further along he sees an old man, walking slowly and stooping often, picking up one starfish after another and tossing each one gently into the ocean. 

"why are throwing starfish into the ocean?," he asks.

"Because the sun is up and the tide is going out and if I don't throw them further in they will die."

"But, old man, don't you realize there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it!  You can't possibly save them all, you can't even save one-tenth of them.  In fact, even if you work all day, your efforts won't make any difference at all."

The old man listened calmly and then bent down to pick up another starfish and threw it into the sea.  

"It made a difference to that one."
