DIY Pearl Necklace


The other day, while browsing very concentrated for a new skirt in my favorite second hand shop, I found a crappy looking t-shirt, decorated with pearls and decided to make a pearl necklace.

I’ve never been a fan of pearls or a fan of anything formal or aristocratic for that matter. It just seems like a big cage, where you act socially appropriate in order to fit in a society that has a needle up its ass. All those rules and etiquette seem suffocating. But recently I’ve been admiring pearls mostly for the weird way they’re produced.

There is something captivating in the whole ordeal of making a pearl. The little oyster gets unlucky and some piece of crap gets stuck in it’s mantle. So what is the most natural thing to do in this sort of situation? Cry, eat lots of chocolate, write depressing poems about the pain of it all!  The oyster just sits there, producing calcium carbonate and conchiolin (read it from wikipedia) to cover the irritant and creates a shiny pearl, ready to become a decoration for a fat wrist. That oyster is stronger than most of the population on this planet!  If I get something stuck like that, I would probably wait for it to magically disappear. Maybe even write a poem about it and post it on the internet for other sad, emo net users to share my pain! It’s just inspirational and sometimes disappointing, how we’ve managed to evolve the crappiest way possible.

Those are not real pearls of course, otherwise I would be writing this on my new boat with a martini and a pretty, colorful straw floating in it. Instead I’m writing this on my sofa, with the chinese I ordered and a weird smell coming from somewhere, better check it out.

  1. LOL! You got me at the pearl part! I thought they were real! I'm not too fond of pearls too but my sister bought me a pearl necklace when she travelled to China few years ago, and I thought they were pretty. I only wear them for formal occasion.

  4. I've always been mildly fascinated by the bizarre way in which pearls are made. It took me a long time to come around to wearing them, though – but once you start, it's easy to get hooked, because there is really no style that they don't work with. They're really, incredible versatile. I love the necklace you created, it looks beautiful, especially against your fucshia dress πŸ™‚

  5. :))) I really enjoy reading your posts. You look simple girl but you are very wise and deepthinker. Your text just remebered me my 1st experience with pearls. At my previous job my colleagues and I were asked to wear pearl earings. I freezed, I imagined myself loking old and funny, as a child that wearing 50 oversize clothes. :))
