How the heck do clams turn sand into pearls?

I wish I could do that :(

I saw a bear once that could turn leaves into gold bars.

they don't. Pearls come from Oysters, and they don't turn sand into pearls anyway. They sand is an irritant in the oyster, and they deal with the annoyance by secreting a substance around the irritant that becomes a pearl.

They hire an oyster to do it.
They pay the bill in clams.
