Barbara Richards of Weems, Virginia, gathers oyster shells and then, using a special mold technique, makes each piece by hand. No two pendants are exactly alike, but are generally the same size and weight, and each is stamped with the '999' mark on the back to indicate that it is composed of Fine Silver, which has a purity beyond Sterling.
Since she allows the natural shape, texture, and contours of real oyster shells to determine the form of the silver, these handmade pendants will vary from one to the next, but all pendants are guaranteed to be 100% authentic in presenting the natural shape of the shell and the purity of the silver.
Pendants include either a 16" or 20" sterling silver chain, but have a bail that can accommodate a variety of chains or neck wires.
Actual size measures approximately 1 5/8 inches tall by 1 1/8 inches wide.
