Welcome to Del's Shells!

Hi, I'm Della, and I love making beautiful, unique, feminine, one of a kind seashell jewelry pieces.

I am a beach loving Florida gal, wife, mom, and grandma. Now that all of the kids are grown, I have a lot of free time on my hands!

I began making jewelry in 2005, after my youngest graduated. I fell in love with this new found hobby. Some of my first pieces were shell jewelry, but back then I used a little hand drill that is operated like a screw driver.

Most of my shells have been hand combed from Florida beaches. I have cleaned, sanitized, drilled, and finished them in gloss, and/or matte sealer, or left them their beautiful natural state. Each piece of jewelry is made one at a time, by my…

Welcome to Del's Shells!

Hi, I'm Della, and I love making beautiful, unique, feminine, one of a kind seashell jewelry pieces.

I am a beach loving Florida gal, wife, mom, and grandma. Now that all of the kids are grown, I have a lot of free time on my hands!

I began making jewelry in 2005, after my youngest graduated. I fell in love with this new found hobby. Some of my first pieces were shell jewelry, but back then I used a little hand drill that is operated like a screw driver.

Most of my shells have been hand combed from Florida beaches. I have cleaned, sanitized, drilled, and finished them in gloss, and/or matte sealer, or left them their beautiful natural state. Each piece of jewelry is made one at a time, by my hands, in my home garage work shop. I occasionally use shells I have bought, that come from far away beaches around the world.

Each piece is made with tender loving care, and I only use shells I really love. It takes time to find and match a pair of shells for earrings, unless I find an entire bivalve intact, and empty. I never take live shells. If somebody is home, he goes back in the water! Some of my shells are more special, as I don't find some of them very often, but I'm really trying to not be stingy with them. After all, I had the fun of finding them!

My pricing reflects not only the supplies I use, but the type of shell I use. Some shells are more plentiful than others, and are priced accordingly.

Enjoy a little piece of our awesome sea, brought to you by mother nature, and me!
