Fossilized alligator dermal scute pendants and earrings 

I finally finished making these 15 necklaces and two pairs of earrings that were commissioned by my friend Caroline of fossilized dermal scutes (osteoderm fossils) from alligators (I think from the Pleistocene era) that she found at Edisto beach (technically, they’re fresh dermal scutes but being fossilized sounds better)…  I used a variety of beads and basic necklace cords and wrapped them​ with copper wire and silver wire. I might have to go down to the beach to find more to make and sell online!

Copper Earrings

My first set of earrings that I made the ear wires for. I used 20 gauge copper wire and various beads. And yes, I used old library catalog cards to display them.
