Native American handmade sterling silver purple spiny oyster cobblestone inlay spider pin & pendant combination. The spider's body is inlaid with juxtaposed angular shaped pieces of purple spiny oyster. The inlay is raised above the surface. Ray Adakai is well-known for this type of corn row jewelry.

The pin/pendant measures 2-5/8 inches long by 2-5/8 inches wide and the bale for the pendant is located behind the spider's head. The piece weighs 32 grams.

Corn Row Technique - Corn row is a notoriously difficult and time consuming mosaic inlay technique that is most often seen in Navajo jewelry. To achieve the proper effect, each stone must be individually rounded along its edges before being placed in its respective mosaic setting. The end result is beautiful.
