The World is Your Oyster: 12 Precious Pearl Crafts


Just like lace and flowers, pearls add a dash of femininity to clothing, accessories, home decor, and more. But did you know that these delicate gemstones come from irritated mollusks? That’s right; if a parasite burrows its way into a mollusk, the mollusk grows a pearl around the affected area to prevent it from spreading. Pretty cool stuff! I wish humans had a defense mechanism like that. Unfortunately, we don’t (yet), and natural pearls are super expensive. Luckily, I can use pearl beads to give my wardrobe a ladylike look.
