Our original La Mere de la Perle bracelet is a perennial customer favorite, so we decided to re-create it using a hand-dyed pearl button in Lapis blue.

The vintage pearl button was 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 button on the stovetop in our Louisiana design studio.
