I really admire women who can design and create jewelry, not just any jewelry but pieces that stand-out even if they’re just made out of ordinary and common materials. I knew of someone, she’s just an ordinary girl who drink along with us in the alley, but when inspiration would struck her, I’ll just drop my jaw enthralled by her quick hands as she make beautiful pieces out of seeing just a dying twig, I guess artists are born that way and before we can even blink, she’s already holding a piece worthy of a space in a specialty shop.
From her stories, she actually didn’t know at first she had this creative gift, until one time she got hold of her moms Mother of Pearl Beads and started to carved, twist wires, combine colors and shapes and eventually created something people around her want.
Lack of resources hindered her from pursuing professional career in jewelry designing, it’s just sad women of her caliber are stuck somewhere doing things they’re not fit into, but I guess wherever you’re thrown into if you have that innate talent, it’ll surely show.
Gosshh, this piece is just beautiful, I found this in one of the online stores around, it’s made of bronze and mother of pearl neck beads, I wonder if she can make this for me? But I guess I should score the beads first.
But have you ever wondered where mother of pearls came from? They’re this glistening layer of the shell lining of Abalones, mollusk and Pearl Oysters, I’m not so sure about the process, there’s a technology for this for sure, and the Aragonite, the term used to call this material, considered one of the toughest and most beautiful natural materials here on Earth can also be used as raw material to produce stunning Mother of Pearl jewelry like this;
