The Imperfection Pendant
Pearls have always been big agents of beauty, delicacy and tradition. Usually when we think about them, the image of a perfect shell with a big and round pearl comes to our minds. But it is not quite like that when we talk about nature. Depending on its origins, one unique shell can have up to 100 pearls inside, and they are not necessarily round as we imagine. But there is where its beauty lives: in a process that takes from 3 to 7 years to happen, the shell, when threatened by a foreign body, slowly releases a substance and involves the body with thousands of leathers of nacre, what forms the pearl, so admired throughout the world. Regardless of its form, the process is always delicate and derives from a threat, what can be a metaphor in life: overcome the fear, value our own process and the beauty of naturalityness (even when is “non-standard”). This pendant is made by one big and extremely rare big pearl, and due to its natural singularity, each unit may present natural variations in its size and shape.
