Nacre ~ Mother of Pearl

Named so, because it is literally the "mother", or creator, of true pearls.

Completely handmade, this finely cut and shaped Nacre (mother of pearl) shell is carefully set on mesh for ease of installation. Each shell tessera is 10mm, 15mm or 20mm square. This option has a joint, however, we also have a butt jointed option (click here).

Commissions have included walls, vanity unit doors and tabletops. Its uses are endless. Where the budget is restricted we recommend that our clients use shell for borders, dados (chair rails) or as accent tiles.

More about Shellwork:

Mother of Pearl’s shimmering, iridescent finish makes it perfect for decorative surfaces.

Once thought of as a delicate material, advances in bonding technology now allow Mother of Pearl to be used as tiles and panels as well as the more traditional inlays.

De Ferranti’s design and commission service offers Shellwork in an infinite variety of colours, textures and patterns. Tiles and panels are made to order and shell inlay work, including furniture and screens, is also undertaken to special commission.
