Mother of Pearls

Moms and grandmoms can show that their loved ones are always close to their heart, with handcrafted necklaces from Vintage Pearl. Meant to be personal, these necklaces can be customized to reflect how many kids or grandkids are in her family. Each child is represented by a luminous freshwater pearl. The pearls are set as “peas” in a hand sculpted pewter pod or "eggs" in an antique sterling silver nest. The designs are suspended from an 18-inch sterling silver ball chain, and it’s all Made in the USA. It wasn’t long ago that Founder Erin Edwards had no idea how to make jewelry. She was a stay-at-home mom in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with four beautiful children, and no formal art training. Deciding she needed a creative outlet, she turned to the internet, learning all she could about jewelry making. Pretty soon, she was in business, creating pieces for a growing market of eager buyers, all while still getting to stay at home with her kids. Word got out fast, though. Within three years, Erin opened The Vintage Pearl’s first retail store. There are two now, and her company, still based in Tulsa, employs locals, ensuring that all of The Vintage Pearl's items, are handcrafted in the USA.

    Heather - can you tell me how the pearls are secured? I absolutely love this product but want to make sure it's rugged enough. :) I have a 10month old (and a 6 and 4 year old) and I'm very active and like to wear my jewelry on more than just special occasions.

    Thanks!

    @Heather

    Freshwater pearls come in a variety of different colors, so to say that you can't have different colors because they only use freshwater pearls is inaccurate. I have personally seen red and blue freshwater pearls, though I know there are more colors, it's just a matter of getting the right supplier.

  • Heather
    Heather – Special Guest
    4/16/2015 12:53 PM

    these look beautiful. Personally, i don't like peas - they get stuck in my teeth but can certainly understand the affinity of many people for peas. I do like pea soup (doesn't get stuck in my teeth). The Emeril pea soup recipe with hot dogs is one of my favorites. Do cut the hot dogs in quarters - we all know the stories about people choking no hot dogs. It is very serious.

    I have two half-step grand children and three of my own. Normally i would order the five in the same pod - but my step daughter can certainly get a bee in her bonnet. I thought it i had just a half pea, it could keep her from becoming Ms Grumpy Pants.

    Can i order half peas? I don't mind paying full price.

    Susan

  • Heather

    4/16/2015 1:45 PM

    I had terrible dealings with this company last mothers day. I messed up my order & never was able to get hold of a real person to help fix it and I was out $44 for one whole gift.

    The other thing is that the chains are very short and not very sturdy.

    An adorable thought but not well done by the company in my opinion.
