Pete Mefford, my grandfather, worked at a jewelers bench in downtown Florence Alabama from 1911 on into the 1960’s. In the 1920’s and 1930’s, the Shoals area was thought as of the perfect storm for fresh water mollusks. Mussel divers would bring pearls from the mollusks they farmed to Pete. As a third generation jeweler, I am using these pearls given to my grandfather many years ago to create one of a kind Singing River Pearls.
Since mother nature has final say; the shape, color, shading, color concentration, thickness, texture, etc. of each piece will vary and is one of a kind. All measurements are approximate.
