La Mere de la Perle in Fern Necklace

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

The pearl buttons were made from Mississippi River mussel shells between 1908 and 1964. Read more on our Buttonology Blog: Mighty Mississippi River Pearls.

In this piece:

  • Fourteen Lady Washington vintage mother-of-pearl buttons, hand-dyed on the stovetop in our Louisiana studio
  • Four brass filigree stampings made in the USA in vintage dies
  • Two tiny Austrian crystals
  • Three styles of antiqued brass chain
  • Length is 16" with a 4" extender
