Blue Mussel Shell Bracelet – Small

Item #: EX3184

As kids we had millionaire dreams, convinced we were going to strike it rich and make it big. We were summer locals at the ocean. We had two dozen small ways to make money. Every once in awhile, something would come along that looked like it could be a big deal, the start of a fortune.

I don’t remember where we heard it, but someone said pearls also form in blue mussels. We were polite, we listened, and the very next day, at low tide we crossed the river where the rocky mud flats had a billion blue mussels. From our sandy side of the river, the opposite shore was blue like blue jeans.

Blue Mussel Shell Bracelet

As kids we had millionaire dreams, convinced we were going to strike it rich and make it big. We were summer locals at the ocean. We had two dozen small ways to make money. Every once in awhile, something would come along that looked like it could be a big deal, the start of a fortune.

I don’t remember where we heard it, but someone said pearls also form in blue mussels. We were polite, we listened, and the very next day, at low tide we crossed the river where the rocky mud flats had a billion blue mussels. From our sandy side of the river, the opposite shore was blue like blue jeans.

Three of us went with hammers and pails, and if you could have heard us talking, it was all about what we could do with the cash we would get for all the pearls we were about to discover. My friends knew my grandfather was a jeweler and that I had a natural in for marketing all pearl treasures that were just sitting at our feet. Truth, our dreams and expedition lasted less than an hour. We found out quickly that pearls weren’t abundant, in fact, three kids going at it full steam found no pearls. We just created a lot of seagull food.

Blue Mussel Shell Bracelet

This is our tribute to 10-year-olds with millionaire dreams and to women everywhere who love the sea. The bracelet is lovely, with texture that allows light to play across the surface.

Perfect miniature mussel shells lined up, head to tail,
each individually linked and independently articulated,
with a bold easy to use lobster claw clasp.

Simple, sleek lines, great look.

 

Evidence that mussels are thriving can be found at the Good Table Restaurant in Cape Elizabeth. If you’re lucky, Lisa, the proprietor, will do her floor show “specials” delivery. Her performance is so good I think it could be performed on a Broadway stage. Among the frequent specials Lisa says, “…and of course, we have our Bangs Island mussels.” She always aces that line. The mussels come in a pail. Bangs Island is in Casco bay, just off the shore of Chebeague Island.

Blue Mussel Shell Bracelet

Our extended ninety days, for a small business, is almost unheard of. Truth is, we shop for gifts too, and rather than scrambling at the last minute and feeling the tension of time, we like this more relaxed approach. We wish everyone did something like this… it would be a kinder, gentler world.
