Each one of our Oyster Shells has been hand picked off the Bayside Shores at the tip of Cape Cod, MA. The shells are gathered after washing up on the shore and you can be sure, this is after their inhabitants have moved out. Then each shell is carefully cleaned and sun dried. All of these beauties measure about 2.75 to 3.00 inches long.
As you may have already guessed, all shells will have imperfections as they used to be a home to a small animal...so no two will ever be the same. The size, shape and imperfections of each one will vary and that is what makes each shell a true one of a kind, no two will ever be alike.
After we have applied the design and then seal it, we carefully gold leaf the edges and leave the back of the shell in it's natural state.
These beautiful shells are hand made and we take our time carefully crafting each one.
All of our Oyster Shells will arrive to you or the gift recipient, attractively boxed and ready for gift giving.
