Mother of Pearl

This title kind of makes me giggle a bit. When my sister and I were younger, we used to joke with my mom and call her "Mother of Pearl." At the time I had no idea what that even was. I actually only became a fan of mother of pearl a couple years ago. I found this beautiful, simple bracelet in my room one day, and started wearing it non-stop. I never really thought anything of it--like where it came from--until I mentioned it to my mom while we were in DC last summer. She couldn't believe I was wearing it because it had been her bracelet from when she was young! It has a silver bottom and is filled with the iridescent mother of pearl--commonly from oysters and other mollusks. Here are some other "mother of pearl" inspired things that I'm loving:
