White pearls have embodied an air of sophistication for centuries, offering reflections of glamour. Style your pearls in multi-layered configurations, a reignited tribute to this classic look.

However, traditional items like this are significantly heavy and uncomfortable to wear for extended periods. Susan Shaw offers some beautiful creations from her jewelry collection to achieve a light, modern touch.

These pieces are made with compressed cotton, tightly spun to produce a bead, and finished with a nacre coating. The result is a much lighter form of nacre, and therefore the flexibility to create larger and ever more intricate designs, such as cotton ball earrings. The complex process used to craft this unique item makes them just as valuable as freshwater jewels and looks just as beautiful, especially when handcrafted into a unique piece.

This range incorporates detailed formations while enabling the wearer to feel comfortable and look their best. Susan Shaw's assortment of lustrous handmade necklaces captures the light, exudes sophistication, and captivates the senses when worn.


Each nacre is a little luminous work of art all on its own. Choose from a host of single or multi-strand ball necklaces – a gorgeous single-strand necklace or ball earrings are a versatile staple that every woman needs in her wardrobe.

Pick a simple chain and adjust the drop to suit your neckline. An opera-length style worn as a single-strand is also a classic, beautiful way to wear one of these distinct creations. Alternatively, you can double over a longer piece to shorten it to a choker length and add layers.

These timelessly elegant designs will stand out in any setting due to the simplicity of their beauty. Pair with Susan Shaw earrings and cultured bracelets for the perfect combination to complete your outfit.
