These magnificently crafted silver shell earrings are 3cm from the top of the shepherd hook to the bottom of the earrings drops. The shell is that of a Conical shell  which are known for their beautiful spiralling cone shape. The Cone shell is often home to small to large sized sea snail and other gastropod molluscs. While these shells and their creatures are beautiful the truth is that they are often deadly. The inhabitants of these cone shells are highly venomous and, hypothetically, the amount of venom from one cone snail could kill 700 people. These stunning yet deadly creatures can be found in the tropical waters of Australia and these earrings are a reminder of their wynorrific existence.
