I love pearls, in case you didn't notice!

If you've been to my shop you may have noticed something.  I like pearls.  Not really sure why.  Maybe it's because I'm a June baby & it's one of my birthstones.  Maybe it's because they're just pretty.  Maybe I'm just fascinated that an annoyed oyster could create something sooo beautiful from something that is really irritating, literally!

A pearl is formed when something gets into the oyster's shell (e.g. a grain of sand) and causes irritation.  To soothe the situation an oyster secretes nacre around the offending object, and viola!  A pearl.

If you are interested in some unique pearl jewelry head on over to my on-line store and take a look!

Here's hoping you find a way to make something beautiful from something irritating!
