Art: Oyster Heart Pendant 4 by Artist Robin Cruz McGee
Natural, organic, distinctive. Living in the Low Country, I look to the beauty of the natural surroundings and elements of the culture for my inspiration. Oysters have been a part of both since before the founding of Charleston. The original name of the point that Charleston occupies was White Point, due to the glittering of oyster shells found on the shores there. Oysters have a long association with love, also.

Just as it takes two to create love, I take the image of two oyster shells nestled together to create the impression of one heart. Each of these pendants is one of a kind, each representation just unique as individuals that come together to make all kinds of loving relationships.

Some of them have barnacles, others have lines; all have distinctive textures and complexities - just like how life makes each of us different and special. The color is generated by fire. Doesn't that make you think of passion? Enough said.
