My Husband was so kind to take the grandchildren and myself to find shells over the Labor Day weekend at one of the local beaches. Our two grandchildren had a field day collecting shells for me. Out of the shells Where large shells that had mother of pearl on them. I used to think they were large fish scales until my grandaughter found one with a muscle in it. I have read that Mother of Pearl come from sea shells. So, putting those two clues together, I am guessing that this is mother of pearl. I could not capture the colors in the necklace, It is very pretty in person. The long beads I purchased .
