Pin, Novelty, Sterling Silver & Orange Spiny Oyster, Vintage, 460
This little pin is perfection!
Crafted by renown Navajo jewelry artisan and silversmith Etta Endito, this vintage pin is a chic, elaborate openwork figure-8 design, centered by a small smooth orange spiny oyster oval cabochon set in a simple bezel and framed with teeny tiny twist wire detail flanked by fluted silver drops. There’s something clean and sleek about the design, and we can picture it on everything from a jean jacket to a hatband, or even pinning your scarf.
