Sterling Silver Spiny Oyster Shell and Amethyst Earrings, Handmade
Beautiful luminescent spiny oyster shell delicately cut into matching oblong shapes. I paired the shell cabochons with tiny amethyst stones to enhance the purple coloring in the shell. I forge all my earwires from 20 gauge sterling silver wire. The entire earring was oxidized black and then polished to bring out the shiny high points, while leaving dark oxidation in the low areas.
Metal: Sterling silver wire and textured sheet
Stones: Oblong purple-tinged spiny oyster shell with round 5mm amethysts
Earrings: Each 1-3/4 inches long x 1/2 inch wide (4.5cm x 1cm)
The earrings will come packaged ready for gift-giving.
