Mother-of-pearl worker

Mother-of-pearl workers create jewellery and decorate objects using the natural material of nacre, or mother-of-pearl. The artisan may use various types of shell, often from oysters, as their primary material. The mother-of-pearl worker will prepare and cut the material before possibly engraving it.
