Wear this elegant bracelet as a reminder that not everything starts out beautiful and perfect – sometimes the irritants in our lives help us to grow something beautiful, like an oyster makes a pearl.
(As a reminder: how oysters make pearls…Pearls are formed in oysters when something slips into the oyster shell. The oyster reacts by covering the irritant with the same substance that is used to create the shell, eventually forming a pearl.)
And you can feel good about shopping with Grit & Grace studio: this South Carolina, woman-founded company creates beautiful jewelry and home accessories while working to restore the oyster shell shortage along the Coast. Oysters need oyster shells to grow, so recycling oyster shells help the reproduction process. Founder Rachel Gordon recycles 10 oyster shells for every Grit & Grace oyster sold.
Why oysters? Oysters improve water quality with their natural filtration abilities, protect the shoreline by preventing erosion, and create reefs which provide habitats for sea life.
Four different styles are available, but all feature the adjustable chain. This gorgeous bracelet will make an excellent gift for every woman in your life!
