Mother of Pearl, which is also known as nacre, is an iridescent layer of material that makes up the lining of many mollusks. The most common source of this material are abalone and pearl oysters. A common use is as an inlay in many musical instruments, furniture, and jewelry pieces. There’s usually an organic and mineral substance that create the Mother of Pearl. Tiny Aragonite hexagonal plates combine with Conchiolin in arranged and alternating layers. Layers are added over time, and many layers build up that make them tough and resilient. It often comes in white, off-white, and pale pink tones. The name “Mother of Pearl” comes from the Latin term ‘mater perlarun’. They can be extracted from the Persian Gulf, the largest ‘shopping mall’ when it comes to pearl production. Other notable locations include Venezuela, Japan, China, Australia, as well as many Pacific islands and rivers in Europe and North America.
My style is simple and elegant and it can be worn by both men and women.
I ensure that I only use real stones, therefore, each stone and silver wrap is a unique piece of artwork, no two pieces are alike. They are all unique and handmade by me. It is made with tender, love and care. If you have a stone you want wrapped, I can do that for you. I do customized orders, if you want anything else let me know.
