This pendant was made by Navajo artist Lyle Piaso. It features
a polished orange spiny oyster shell sets in a smooth sterling silver bezel.
It's a perfect orange, that's hard to find sometimes. It comes with
a really nice 18" sterling silver chain.
It's marked sterling and signed.
It's 1 1/8" tall by, plus 3/8" bail, by 7/8" at it's widest point.
Pendant weight: 9.9 grams on my scale
I placed a quarter there for scale.
Spiny Oyster Shell, Spondylus Brodnip Princess, is found in the Sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico.
Sure to make a Fine addition to any collection, or a great gift!
