These are wonderful orange, spiny oyster drop earrings. Just that perfect pop of red/orange you want - perfect! This is the Piper Earring design, and we couldn't love it more than in this fabulous, orange Spiny Oyster. Modern and traditional at the same time! Minimal embellishments except for the trio of sterling silver beads - just enough to add mystique to these poppy red Spiny Oyster Shell. 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.
