Hand Crafted Mother of Pearl & Faux Pearl Beaded Necklace

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 .
