Some days all we want is a pop of color. Spiny Oyster is where we find this sunny red/orange in western jewelry ... and also here at LBJ! We love it!
You choose your own stones for these Spiny Oyster Shell earrings.
This is the Piper Earring design -- new at LBJ but soon to be a favorite! And we couldn't love it more than here in Spiny Oyster ... in these unique, dynamic cabs, reddish orange ... unique Spiny Oyster Earrings ... Modern and traditional at the same time! Minimal embellishments except for the trio of sterling silver beads ... just enough to add mystique. All .925 Sterling Silver -- oxidized, sanded and burnished to the perfect finish. Easy on and squeeze although they will come with a rubber stopper.

All traditional silversmithing is done in my Baltimore, MD studio.
Spiny Oyster was used by Native American artists to make inlays in fine jewelry. It comes from the shell of the bivalve mollusk, Spondylus various. Like many other bivalve mollusks, the soft, meaty interior of Spondylus is edible, so the Spiny Oyster’s valued for its hard, outer shell as well as its interior meat. Despite its name, the Spiny Oyster’s much more closely related to the scallop than to the true oyster.
