These seed pearl pieces are some of the finest hand made jewelry you will find. They are backed with mother of pearl which has been pierced allowing the tiny 1mm pearls to be strung to the backing with horse hair.
Very popular in the early and mid-1800's there is a classic photograph of
Mary Lincoln decked out in a fabulous set of these pieces. They have
stood the test of time and are fabulous collectibles.
