Event Details:

Freshwater pearls from the bottom of the Black River have been a large part of our local history, but what do you do with the pearls once they’re found?  Join our staff to make beautiful necklaces, bracelets, or earrings from milky white pearls and learn about the history of the freshwater pearling industry on the Black River.  Note: the pearls used in this workshop were not harvested from the Black River. Please bring a sack lunch. For more information, or to register, contact the park.
Admission:
$20 per necklace, $10 per bracelet, $5 per earring set
