Spiny Oyster Shell and Sterling Silver Dangle Earrings. These are one of a kind (ooak) art, jewelry that makes a fashion statement. I personally selected these cabochons, then hand forged the metalwork to take advantage of the beauty of the stones. I've hired a model so you can see how you'll look wearing the piece.
In the ancient cultures that inhabited the American Southwest, Central America, and South America, the spiny oyster served many important purposes. Besides a source of nourishment, most of these cultures attributed a religious or ceremonial value to spondylus. Some cultures also used them as currency.
Inca referred to spiny oyster as mullu and used the shell as an offering for rain and good harvests during the spring. The importance of this shell was so great that there was a unique role in their society based around the mollusk.
