Do you remember the stellar views, the delight in the sweet, buttery, briny flavor of the freshest Oysters you ever tasted, the bright tingle of the perfect wine, and the moment, ahhh, the moment?
The Virginia Oyster Collection will transport you to these moments you've shared with your loved ones with a tangible celebration, an heirloom.
A Taste of the Commonwealth!
To ensure that the beautiful rich textures of the shells were captured, each piece has been meticulously molded by hand from actual Virginia Oyster Shells that I personally collected from a very special place, dear to my heart, on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. Molten wax is poured into the molds, then the interior of each wax form is carved out to reflect the satin curvature of a real shell. The finished wax forms are cast in Sterling Silver, cleaned-up and polished by hand to a reflective burnished finish accentuating the textures of the exterior shell. Several pieces are then topped off with a gorgeous A-grade white or peach freshwater cultured pearl. Pieces from this collection make the perfect gift for you or someone you love!
What's more, I will donate the proceeds of each sale to the Artisans Center of Virginia. Thank you for purchasing and helping make these gifts possible!
