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!
