There’s a certain sense of pride that comes with making or doing things for yourself. Sure, going out and buying something is all good and well, but you’re going to appreciate it a lot more if you worked on it with your own two hands. You can always make your own jewelry, but what if you could actually harvest the center stones and place them all on your own?
The Farm Your Own Pearl Kit will let you pull a pearl fresh out of an oyster. Valentine’s Day may be a long way off, but what says “I love you” more than pulling a fancy little ball of calcium carbonate out of a mollusk, and putting it on a necklace? The oyster is preserved in a little clear canister in a mixture of alcohol and water, so it’s best not to eat the thing after you’re done with it. It’ll only cost you about $11, and would be worth going through with it just to say you’ve had the experience.
