Beader Design #9 : Debbi's Mother of Pearl Necklace

By on Sunday, January 21, 2007 0 Comments

Debbi created this necklace using three mother of pearl round discs which were coloured lightish brown. She teamed this design with creamy glass rice pearls with small grey beads as accents. The whole effect not only matches her grey suit but is also sufficiently neutral to go with more than just that outfit.

Mother of pearl (MOP) is also known as nacre which is secreted by certain species of molluscs, notably the pearl oyster and freshwater pearl mussels. This material lines the inner shells and its iridescence is an attractive quality.
