This necklace goes with our book, Cultivating Pearls. If you are purchasing the book for yourself or as a gift, this necklace will become meaningful as it symbolically carries the meaning of the lessons within it. That is why girls who have come to our retreats and gone through the lessons very rarely take their necklace off.
When a single grain of sand enters into the living membrane of an oyster, it causes the oyster irritation. The oyster’s reaction is to continually coat it with a substance called nacre, eventually transforming the grain of sand into a beautiful pearl. The pearl symbolizes deep inner change that now shines with beauty outward to the world. The Latin word for pearl literally means "unique," attesting to the fact that no two pearls are identical. You and I are like that grain of sand when we come to God. He receives us as we are, then covers us with His grace and refines us by the truth of His Word. Through that process, He creates something of beauty in us that, each in our own unique and creative way, reflects who He is to the world around us.
