Found 6 pearls in 2011

Natural Oyster Pearls

Natural Oyster Pearls

Been eating oysters for 30 years and never bit into a pearl until 2011. I lost the first 2 pearls, hence why the photo only has 4. The first one no big deal, just simply lost it, by the second one, starting to get interesting, but when I pulled my car keys from my pocket it flipped out in the parking lot, never to be found. When I found the 3rd one, I felt at that time something was up so really started to hold on to them. And 3 more came through out the remainder of that year. It was a crazy and stressful year so I can't even remember all the places and people I was with when each pearl was found.

The really crazy thing is that year I traveled across the country being with family for almost 8 months. I stayed with my first daughter in TX until she finally lost her battle with cancer, then a volunteer early retirement from a job of 33 years that I took, then spent time with second daughter in LA who had a baby girl born with brain damage due to stroke, then dad had heart attack so rushed over to AL to help his recovery. And in it all I did have many great times with my children, grandchildren and met many new friends. Watched my first daughter get baptized and got my 9 yr old grandson into church for his first time.

So for me, I have search for meaning in these pearls as they relate to that year, I do believe they are connected, I just can't believe it to just be coincidence. I am thinking of a type of leather necklace with a small pouch or pendent that will hold them.

Well that's my pearl story...Oh and haven't found another pearl yet but still enjoying my oysters!

Hello Nolan,

Oh, my, what an amazing year you had and also amazing to find so many pearls in one year. I agree, it does sound like a plan and not just coincidence. Be encouraged. You are blessed in spite of hardships you and your family faced.

A suggestion would be to put the pearls in a series of pearl cages as pendants on a chain. I do have some pearl cages available if you give me the sizes of pearls I can give you an estimated cost for sterling silver.

Thanks for sharing! I love hearing about finding pearls!

God bless, Kari
