This outstanding Necklace features a Spiny Oyster Shell and Sterling Silver Heart Pendant by Santa Fe artist Dan Dodson. The Spiny Oyster Shell stone is a beautiful striated coral-orange color with delicate darker orange steaks, and has been precisely cut and polished to a sheen. The Heart is wrapped in a raised Sterling Bezel and decorated with three handcrafted Sterling Stars. It hangs from a custom V-shaped Sterling Bail that has two Sterling Stars and intricate stamping. The piece has a heavy Sterling back and is stamped with the artist's hallmark and "Sterling." We've paired the Spiny Oyster Shell Pendant with two strands of color-matched Spiny Oyster Shell Nuggets, graduated from 6-to-10mm in diameter. The Nuggets display a range of coral and orange hues as well as traces of white, and are glossy like the Pendant. They are highlighted by two 12mm Hill Tribe Silver Ridged Bicones on either side of the Pendant Bail, along with four 14mm Sterling Teardrops. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and a Sterling Toggle Clasp and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 142 grams and is 22 inches long, plus the Pendant, which is 3 inches high by 1-1/2 inches wide including the Bail.
