This really little pendant was made by Navajo artist Lyle Piaso. It features
a polished orange spiny oyster shell sets in a smooth sterling silver bezel. It comes with
a nice 18" sterling silver chain.
It's marked sterling and signed.
Overall it's 3/4" tall with bail by almost 1/2" wide.
Pendant weight: 2.2 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!
