I handpick each oyster here in the Low Country, clean, then paint them with a gold acrylic paint and then seal them with a clear acrylic finish. Each oyster has its own unique shape, size, and color and there are no two exactly alike. The necklace measures about 17.5 inches long. The necklace is made with hand painted 20mm white wood beads that have a gold brush stroke and blue and white chinoiserie beads. The blue and white chinoiserie beads are porcelain and hand painted and may vary in size, shape, and or color.
