Bracelet - Handmade, Vintage Mississippi River Pearl Buttons

La Mere de la Perle in Lapis Bracelet

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

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