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 and lapis blue with some white pearl accents. 

The vintage pearl buttons 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 pearls on the stovetop in our Louisiana design studio.
