Description

This piece is made from Mother of Pearl shells and waxed thread. The thread is braided together to give a rope like design which the shells are attached to. The chord is beautifully crafted, giving a lovely authentic feel to the necklace.

There are 11 Mother Of Pearl shells fastened together with sterling silver. The shells have been ground, cut, shaped and polished to give the perfect round shape. These Mother of Pearl shells are sourced from the North of Fiji.

The necklace is packaged in a hand-made masi pouch, made out of the inner bark of the paper Mulberry tree. Masi is a famous Fijian cloth that is beautiful and natural, and complements the MOP shells. A beautiful Fijian treasure, Mother of Pearl necklace coupled with a Masi pouch, ideal as a gift. Matching earrings are available.

Rako have carefully designed each piece so that the natural Fijian materials used have no customs restrictions. Each piece of Mother of Pearl shell has been carefully processed - this means it has been sanded, oiled and polished.
