La petite boutique de perles is the french translation for The Little Shop of Pearls, my new online shop. Currently, I am working to bring french inspired handmade items as well as other second hand accessories that have been stored away and ready for new homes. The history of pearls is an interesting one and in part explains why I decided to use the word pearls in the name of my new shop.
Perles are formed within the soft tissue of a living shelled mollusk and is made up of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. It is hard to find a perfect pearl and no one pearl has exactly the same form, just as each item that is handmade is not the same. There is something perfect in things that are not perfect, with each item being unique, and surprisingly different each time…
