The subtle shades of orange and coral enhance the beauty of this bib necklace and earrings set by Navajo artist Geraldine James. The necklace has twenty softly rounded oval cabochons of spiny oyster set in straight bezels. Each of the cabs are separated by tiny raindrops of sterling silver. This double row  of spiny oyster cabs hangs from a handmade sterling silver link chain.

Below the double row of cabs is a pendant of matching spiny oyster cabochons carefully cut and placed in straight bezels just like the ones above. There are eleven cabs on the pendant, and again each is separated by sterling silver rain drops.

The matching earrings reflect the beauty of the spiny oyster with seven cabochons each. The lovely striated shells again are separated with tiny sterling silver rain drops.  The earrings have been carefully created in the same style reflected with the bib necklace. This earring and necklace set is quite stunning and makes are beautiful statement when worn together.

Condition: Excellent – original condition.
