Spiny Oyster Pendant with 20 Strand Sterling Silver Necklace

$ 325.00

What a statement this piece makes! Approximately 1.5 inches tall and hung on a luxurious 20-strand sterling silver chain, this necklace makes a dramatic entrance. 

Before European contact, native metalwork consisted primarily of hammering and etching copper into pendants or earrings and fashioning copper and silver into beads. After Navajo, Hopi and Pueblo artists learned silversmithing from the Spanish in the 1800's, metal jewelry arts blossomed in the southwest. Many designs seen today are a reflection of the Spanish silversmithing techniques blended with traditional patterns.
