Star Fish Are Sea Stars

I think that the two most sought after sea creatures must be the sand dollar and the sea star, or commonly called “star fish”.  Neither one is a shell or a fish.

I have found sea stars at the ocean, but they were all alive so I didn’t collect them. Now that I need some for my business, I had to purchase them at the craft store.

This weekend I plan to begin using them in new designs for my Sandpiper Wedding shop.

How much do you know about sea stars? They are echinoderms, just like the sea urchin and sand dollar and they don’t all look like 5 pointed stars.

“Starfish Are Sea Stars” is my Squidoo lens that is all about sea stars and there you will find some amazing posters showing the huge variety of this amazing sea creature.

  1. They are SO beautiful. I often see purple sea stars in the salt marsh or in tidepools at the nearby beach. I have a dried one similar to the beige one in the photo that I purchased in Florida many years ago. The white one looks very exotic.
