About pearls: The pearl is an organic gem grown within oysters and a few other mollusks. It is formed when a foreign object, like a tiny stone, makes its way into the mollusk's shell. The irritation caused by the foreign particle makes the oyster form a secretion, called nacre, to cover it. Nacre is the same material that forms the mollusk's shell. When dried, the particle again irritates the animal, so it begins to secrete again; as thousands of layers of nacre coat the intruder, a pearl is formed. The process takes anywhere from four months to seven years — the longer the process, the bigger the pearl. A single mollusk can create dozens of pearls at a time, depending on how many particles enter the shell.
The pearl is said to improve self-worth and help people see themselves. It is an emblem of modesty, chastity and purity, and symbolizes love, success and happiness.
I think the pearl is a perfect symbol for the awareness colors. That is why I chose to use freshwater pearls and clear crystals in my design of this bracelet.
