Some time back, Steve Swan of Swan Ltd. Jewelers in Lake City, Minnesota, contacted me because of his interest in locally made pearl buttons and natural pearls.

On a recent trip home to Minnesota to visit my mother and family I stopped by to see these natural Mississippi River pearls and visit Swan Ltd. Jewelry, Swan's jewelry store in Lake City, Minnesota.

Aren't these natural pearls gorgeous? These beauties were worth traveling to see.

This lake is actually a natural widening of the Mississippi River like a snake that has swallowed an elephant as in the children's book, "Little Prince". You have read the "Little Prince" haven't you?
