Oyster Disc and Spike Necklace
When I used to see an oyster shell, most of the time it was "yummy!" Now, I see opportunity (and also, yummy!)
These shells have been coated in UV resin to help add strength and also enhance their natural beauty. Shells were gathered from Fort Monroe Outlook Beach in Virginia. The shells feature a variety of items dangling inside including pearls and Czech glass. Center oyster measures 3" long and is surrounded by mother of pearl discs and spikes. Necklace is strung on a chain made of pearls, metal heishi and faceted Czech glass in pink and clear.
Necklace measures 18" long.
