E.L. Billah's craftsmanship shines in this sterling silver naja pendant, where the traditional meets the modern. The vivid orange spiny oyster shell is elegantly framed by the naja's sterling embrace, each swirl and dot of the silver-work echoing the meticulous care of its creation. The meticulously handcrafted design reflects the depths of the sky and the spirit of the earth, symbolizing protection and beauty in one harmonious piece. This pendant isn't just jewelry; it's a conversation starter, a keepsake, a piece of heritage.


Found in the warm waters, spiny oyster shells come from bivalve mollusks known for their bright purple, orange, red, brown, and pink colors. The ‘spiny’ in their name refers to the ridges along the shells. Spiny oyster shells have been important elements of Native American jewelry for centuries. People in South America have also prized spiny oyster shells and incorporated them into jewelry, pottery, ceremonial objects, and other works of art. Spiny oyster has been found in burial sites from 6000 BCE. Collecting shells requires diving skills or special equipment, and high-quality shells are rare, which makes spiny oyster shells even more precious.
