Oyster Jewelry Series was inspired by the shape of oyster shells found in Bull’s Bay, just north of Charleston. An oyster develops characteristics unique to the waters in which they grow, a metaphor for how place can shape an artist’s work. The design has elegant, clean lines that are based on the exterior contour of the oyster shell and reference the continuous connection to the saltwater marshes surrounding Charleston. Kaminer’s original design approach interprets the form to the essential shape. Clean, fluid lines are distinctive to Kaminer’s design style and contour line drawing influenced this jewelry series.
The oyster shape was hand pierced from silver sheet and finished to a smooth, high shine finish. This little pendant adds a delicate touch to any look. It comes with the option of a 16″, 18″, or 20″ silver cable chain.
