Mother of Pearl Key Chain

This Item Has Been Sold

Accepted Payments
  • Paypal


This is a key chain made with mother of pearl. The pieces are called frangia. They are basically freeform sticks of pearl. Mother of pearl is gorgeous and, after gemstones, one of my favorites to work with. It is incredibly versatile and easily goes from day to night, summer to winter, man or woman.

Please look at all the pictures. This is not your typical, hard to manage key chain, where you have to split apart the rings. This has a much easier mechanism that opens and closes and is more secure.

**I know International shipping rates look high, however, I do REFUND any overages of a dollar or more. If you would like an exact rate, let me know your country and item youd like to purchase, and I will get back to you. Otherwise, like I said, I will issue a refund.**

Shipping upgrades are available, including express or UPS, Fed-Ex, etc, but will be extra! Please contact me for more details.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Mother of pearl is the pearly internal layer of certain mollusk shells, used to make decorative objects. Also called nacre.

It is also associated with protection and wealth. It signifies faith, charity, and innocence, enhances personal integrity, and helps to provide focus to ones attention.

*If you like, I can ship directly to the recipient to save you extra shipping and handling charges.

*I ship to the address provided by paypal or, should you choose it, google checkout. Please make sure that address is up to date. If you would like your item sent to a different address, please use the Contact Artisan button to let me know.

*International orders take longer for me to ship, up to 5 days. Please be aware of this. If you need it sooner, let me know.

*My turn around time during sales may be longer, up to 5 days. If you need your item before that, please use the Contact Artisan button to let me know.

*Custom orders: I am more than happy to create a custom design for you. I do not charge extra or add any fees to the price. You pay exactly what you would have had the item been finished. Except that you receive free shipping on all custom orders. Please contact me and give me an idea of what you would like. Pictures, drawings, specific gems, even just a color scheme or an idea are all welcome.

I would also be more than happy to try and incorporate a piece you have. For instance, an heirloom brooch could easily become a gorgeous pendant.

Generally, the process will go something like this: You give me an idea of what you would like, say, a garnet cluster ring. I will ask you your ring size and what material you want for the ring: sterling, silver plate, copper, etc. I will ask you if you want a plain band, textured, or one with a design; then I will email you pictures for you to choose from. I will ask you how big you want the garnets or how big you want the cluster of garnets. Then I will get to work to create a design that is yours and yours alone :)

I generally require a non-refundable 50% deposit before I begin to cover the cost of supplies. Custom orders will take anywhere from one week to one month, depending upon the intricacy of the work and the availability of supplies. I will ALWAYS consult you at each and every step, including spending your money! Shipping is always FREE for custom orders. Please check out my Gallery (top) if you would like to see past works for inspiration.


USPS first class and priority shipping are available, however, I do not use parcel post. If you would like to upgrade your shipping to express, or Fed-Ex or UPS, please feel free to contact me before paying. Upgrades will cost more. International customers, yes, I do ship to your country, if you do not see your country listed, please contact me for exact quotes. I will refund any shipping overages of a dollar or more. Unfortunately, International shipping may take longer to be mailed, depending on the forms and modes of shipping. Never hesitate to ask me about the status of your order.

The Buyer is responsible for any and all customs fees! I do NOT mark 'gift' for orders, and there are no exceptions to this--that is called mail fraud, and is against the law.

US shipping is ALWAYS free for orders over $50. International shipping is ALWAYS half off for orders over $50.

If you buy both pieces in a set, I will deduct 10% from the total price of both items. If there are three, I will deduct 15%. Individual listings will be marked with a --Piece 1-- and --Piece 2--. Please see individual listings for more detailed information.

In an effort to save trees and our planet, I will not include an invoice unless one is specifically asked for.

All California sales will be charged appropriate sales tax.

Payment: Payment is due the day of purchase. If this is a problem, please contact me BEFORE purchasing. I recognize these are hard times, and am willing to work with you, but please contact me first. I do offer layaway for pieces costing more than $50. If I do not receive payment or otherwise do not hear from you within 2 days, I will cancel the order on the third day.

Shipping: I combine shipping, but all items must be paid for on one invoice. Shipping is automatically combined. I charge exact shipping; if you are overcharged by a dollar or more, I will refund the overage. Insurance is available upon request. I am not responsible for uninsured packages.

Returns: Yes, I accept returns, but you must contact me FIRST and within two weeks. I will refund you the money, MINUS shipping charges and any fees incurred (such as paypal). For earrings, an additional 10% will be deducted, to cover the cost of a new pair of earwires. All jewelry must be in brand new condition and never worn. It must be returned as it was received.

If the fault is mine (for instance, I sent you the wrong item), I will of course refund you 100% of the cost, including shipping.

Yes, I offer gift wrap. All orders come wrapped in giftable form. They may be wrapped in hand-stamped tissue paper tied with a ribbon; in a small gift box; or they may come in an organza or other decorative bag. Please contact me for extra gift wrap options, including wrapping paper and decorative boxes.
