Spiny oyster shell is a traditional material used by many Native American silversmiths, with its natural coloring that ranges from yellow and white to red and even purple. Here, a trio of fiery orange-red oyster cabochons form a stacked teardrop design, framed in sterling silver and accented with a stamped bead. Each is handcrafted in New Mexico by Navajo artist Carol Wylie.

This jewelry item comes packaged in a white box (pictured).
