Item Description

A stunning Mother-of-pearl necklace by jewelry artist Lucy Sandler.  Lightweight, off-white color, approximately 18 inches long.

Mother-of-pearl shell for jewelry refers to the nacre that coats the inside layer of the mollusk shell which is used to form pearls--hence, it's the mother of the pearl. Mother-of-pearl shell jewelry can include much larger focal pieces than simple pearls since nacre substance takes up a whole shell's interior, offering a larger working surface for carving. 

Donated by Lucy Sandler.
