How are these items made?

Mother of pearl handcrafting has been popular in Asia for centuries! Oysters, mollusks, and abalone shells are lined naturally with crystals of calcium carbonate. These crystals produce iridescent colors when light is shined on them. Shells are pressed into a sheet, a design is imprinted and then glazed with lacquer.  The finished item has shiny reflective look with a smooth finish!
