Announcing Poly Crepe de Chine!
Vignettes of fossils discovered by Mary Anning in the Blue Lias fossil beds at Lyme Regis.
Belemnites - bullet shaped fossils which the locals called "devil's fingers"
fragments of crinoids - they look like wee flowers or stars,
fossilised gastropods - sea shells
and of course those lovely curled Ammonites... "snake-stones".
There was also a local name for the sections of animal spine... "verteberries" (vertebrae), to which were sometimes attributed medicinal and mystical properties!
