About the Piece
Mushrooms hold meaning for many cultures around the world who use them medicinally, religiously and as food. They are used as talismans of rebirth, recycling and transformation.
Mushroom charm made from iridescent white Mother of Pearl shell and iridescent blue/green abalone used to create the gills underneath the cap. This piece hangs 1" long from a 14k gold bail large enough to fit over most chain clasps, making it an easy addition to a collection of charms you already wear. Due to the natural variation in the shell color from which each piece is carved, as well as the hand of the individual artist who carved it, each talisman is unique and one-of-kind and will have characteristics specific to the one who possesses it.
* These pieces are not intended to be worn in water. Chains sold separately.
About the Artist
