She Sells Sea Shells....

My friend, Rhonda, at Shellbelle's Tiki Hut, is the creator of these beautiful works of "driftshell" art. In all my years of shell collecting and decorating homes with shells, I have never seen anything quite like these intricate puzzles of "driftshells"... those often overlooked shells which have been tossed and tumbled for who knows how many years. They are amazing!


Not only does she create these hearts, she has gorgeous picture frames...and vases.... and candle holders...


I absolutely LOVE the candle holders...I have one of her very first designs! Right now it's resting on a pedestal, and looks fabulous in my tabletop display. It even came with shell crush, which adds that final designer touch. These candle holders would be so beautiful for a coastal-themed dinner...or a WEDDING...or a ........






(And to think that I often tossed these driftshells aside...DUH!)


Visit Rhonda's ETSY store for more examples. And please remember Shellbelle's Tiki Hut when you are looking for that one (or more!) special coastal touch for your decor.


And...from now until Mother's Day...Rhonda is offering a 15% discount on all purchases... Here's the code: PINKMOON15


I know I'd love one of these hearts! What a wonderful way to say "I love you" to a coast-lover.

Gorgeous. I love them. That is so nice of you to post about her shop. I am going to have to do a little bit of shopping! They are so pretty.

Thanks Jane! You're such a doll and I love how you displayed your candle holder.

These are gorgeous. The love heart is simply stunning.
Hope the instrument gets fixed as well. My son is in the school band and it is prohibitive.
Best Carolyn
