This lovely, simple and easy-to-wear necklace features a whispy, orangy red Spiny Oyster shell focal. The minimally enhanced elongated orange red spiny oyster oval is wonderful alone or stacked with others. This piece is great for every day, with the perfect pop of Chili Red Spiny Oyster in a minimal, .925 Sterling Silver Setting. All traditional silversmithing is done in my Baltimore, MD studio.
You will wear this all the time. The .925 sterling silver chain is fixed to the pendant and fits 15.5-17.5 inches.
Spiny Oyster Oval - 8x22mm - a substantially similar spiny oyster will be used to make your pendant. Reach out if you want to see photos.

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.
