La Mere de la Perle in Lapis 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 vivid shades of sky blue and lapis. We added in some white pearls to create a piece in colors that conjure a bright spring beach day.

The pearls were manufactured between 1908 and 1964 from Mississippi River mussel shells. 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 St. Francisville 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
