La Mere de la Perle in Fern Earrings


- +

Our original La Mere de la Perle earrings were a perennial customer favorite so we decided to re-create them using hand-dyed pearls in verdant shades of pistachio, sage, and fern. The pearls were manufactured between 1908 and 1964 from Mississippi River mussel shells. In this piece: Four Lady Washington vintage mother-of-pearl buttons, hand-dyed in on the stovetop in our Louisiana studio Two brass filigree stampings made in the USA in vintage dies Two tiny Austrian crystals Nickel-free & lead-free brass euro wire closures Hangs 1 7/8”
