An oyster doesn’t begin to form a pearl until something dangerous enters it’s body. When this happens, it secretes a substance called nacre to coat the invader to prevent it doing harm, and eventually, over time, forms a pearl. We all have hardships and challenges in our lives, but we are resilient. Not only that, but we are able to turn the most difficult stuff into beautiful lives. This necklace is great at any length, especially choker.
