Spiny Oyster meets Coral

About this design:

I have been holding on to this strand of spiny oyster for over a year...I purchased in Tucson last year along with a strand of orange. They are so special, they are laced with crushed Turquoise.


Spiny Oyster with crushed Turquoise, White Sponge coral barrels, Freshwater pearls, Sterling silver clasp.

    Wow! What a great design! All of the colors in spiny oyster are so great but I especially love the hot, hot red. However, love the purple and orange, too. :)

    I love chunkier styles and this one is gorgeous! I have some white barrel coral that I mixed with blue sponge coral.

    I’m a fan of spiny oyster too. I’m surprised you could let go of them after only a year….I understand hoarding very well. ;-)
    I’ve also seen rondelles of purple spiny oyster mixed with turquoise (Morenci turquoise if I remember correctly) and they are gorgeous!

    These flat chips fit so nicely with the shape of the white coral. A nice chunky piece with class!
    Great design!
