La Mere de la Perle in Lapis EarringsRegular price $37.00
Our original La Mere de la Perle earrings are a perennial customer favorite so we decided to re-create them using hand-dyed pearl buttons in lapis blue and white.
The vintage pearl buttons featured in these earrings 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 pearl buttons on the stovetop in our Louisiana design studio.
