Our Mother of Pearl Coin Necklace is a super fun, casual necklace. The dark wood beads contrast nicely with the turquoise-colored heshi and round beads. But the stars are the coin beads made from mother of pearl.
Mother of pearl, also known as nacre, is an organic–inorganic composite material produced by some mollusks as an inner shell layer. It’s also the material of which pearls are composed. It’s strong, resilient, and wonderfully iridescent and has been utilized in jewelry making for centuries.
I get a laid back, beach vibe from this necklace. I can just see the sun dancing on the crashing waves, feel the sea breeze on my face; warm sand between my toes.
Damn, I better schedule a trip to the coast! What about you?
