Pearls are naturally, but rarely, created in oysters. They symbolize something rare, fine, admirable and valuable. Most fine jewelry is created from precious metals and jewels extracted from the Earth, but pearls are a rare entity created inside a living oyster.
This figurative glass ornament is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered.
