Our original La Mere de la Perle earrings were a perennial customer favorite so we decided to re-create them using hand-dyed pearls in verdant shades of pistachio, and fern.

The vintage pearl buttons were hand-carved from Mississippi River mussel shells by the American Pearl Button Company of Washington which operated between 1908 and 1964. We lovingly hand-dyed the pearls on the stovetop in our Louisiana design studio.
