Crafted entirely by hand by Navajo jewelry artisan Cathy Yazzie, these romantic Navajo Heart Pierced Earrings with Purple Spiny Oyster are bezel-set with heart-shaped cabochons of purple spiny oyster. The sterling silver settings of these Navajo Heart Pierced Earrings with Purple Spiny Oyster are delineated with twist wire hearts. The artist’s hallmark, C. Yazzie, is stamped on the back. Handcrafted in the U.S.A. Naturally occurring spiny oyster variations and individually crafted settings assure each pair of earrings is unique.
The beautiful, polished cabochons studding these Navajo Heart Pierced Earrings with Purple Spiny Oyster are fashioned from the shell of unusual spiky bivalves, commonly known as spiny oysters. Found in the Gulf of California and along the Pacific coast, spiny oyster shells with their extravagant range of colors (purple to orange, red and yellow) have been used in Native American jewelry for centuries. Several of the hundreds of pieces of silver Navajo jewelry curated by our National Museum of the American Indian feature shell adornments.
