Oyster with Pearl Ornament
Pearls are naturally, but rarely, created in oysters. They symbolize something rare, fine, admirable and valuable. Most fine jewelry is created from precious metals and jewels extracted from the Earth, but pearls are a rare entity created inside a living oyster.
Each figurative glass ornament produced by Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800’s. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved molds made exclusively for Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
