Crushed oyster shell is the perfect solution to making flawless pearl necklaces. Made with the same material that the actual oyster produces its main advantage is that it feels like a pearl. Although we can’t consider it to be 100% a real pearl these crushed shell pearls hold the same weight and texture that a real pearl embraces. Crushed oyster shell can be used to make many things. Mother of pearl refers to the nacre an oyster secretes. As mentioned earlier the mother of pearl is made up of the same nacre the oyster produces. Thus taking the powder of the crushed oyster shell, one can easily create magical inlays for necklaces, pendants and even silverware.
