This one of a kind ring is a show stopper! Spiny Oyster shell is everywhere, and this gorgeous orange to red chili pepper is stunning with this repurposed .925 sterling silver vintage feather. This ring is a size 7, One of a Kind ring. OOAK, and you will receive the ring in the photos. A great add on to a handful of rings or perfect statement on its own. All traditional silversmithing techniques are done in my Kensington, 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 varius. 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.
