Open an Oyster at home and find a pearl!
Look! A Pearl!
This kit includes your very own oysters. Open it to find a pearl inside! This kit comes with a necklace to wear your own pearl! Will your pearl be pink, white, black or purple? Who knows?! We love these Open new Oyster kits and we think they are a great activity to combat boredom. Order one for yourself or send it to your grandkids! Fun for the whole family!
Pearls In Action
In January, 2019 we hosted a fundraiser, Pearls for Project Safe, at our store in Athens, GA! It was an amazing month and we thank all of you for your support and purchases! It was an amazing event! Take a peek at the few photos I took of folks opening an oyster and finding a pearl!
Project Safe aims to reduce incidents of domestic violence and increase victims’ access to safety and justice through a variety of services. In an effort to support their ongoing services, we invited customers to come by The Pearl Girls. For $10, they picked their own oysters, opened them and discovered what pearl was hidden inside! All oysters came with a mixed metal necklace. And all profits went to Project Safe!
Pearls at Home
Now, since we have so many wonderful customers who couldn’t make it AND so many wonderful customers outside of Athens, we are so excited to offer a little take home kit! Feel free to order your own “Open and Oyster” kit and we will mail you an oyster to open and a necklace to go with it! All for $10!
Another fun aspect to our fundraiser was your ability to upgrade to our gorgeous wire wrapped ring (Artist Sylvia Dawe was on hand making rings for our fundraiser!). Although the fundraiser has closed, we still offer wire wrapped rings. See them here! After you open your oyster, mail your pearl back to us and we can make a ring for you!
Please know that the fundraiser for rings and oysters is now closed. We are so excited that we were able to raise $1100 for Project Safe… thanks to the wonderful generosity of our customers!!
Just for Fun
The final thing to know about these oysters… these are something we ordered specifically for this event and fundraiser. Although we create all of our jewelry here in the USA, these were produced and created overseas. We do not offer our same workmanship guarantee on these oysters or their accompanying necklaces. Because of the nature of this product and because we were donating these profits, we also do not offer any refunds. These are considered FINAL SALE.
Do Not Eat the Oysters
Do not eat these oysters!! They are preserved in a solution of rubbing alcohol and water so they fine to open and touch and get your pearl but they are not safe to eat.
Thanks so much for joining us in this amazing fundraiser and for having fun opening these oysters! I appreciate you!!
