Oval shaped mother of pearl beads-
Mother of Pearl, also called Nacre, is the pearly internal layer of certain mollusk shells. Its the same material pearls are made of. These are some of the ones I bought. They are dyed to different colors. I got some in different shapes and sizes. I think the pearlescent sheen would really be wonderful in jewelry.
