Just finished embellishing this gorgeous chambered nautilus shell with Swarovski crystals for a bride here in Southern California! She's decorating the bridal table with lots of my embellished shells for a one of a kind display for her special day!

About

Loving the Coastal Life....

I always loved to decorate. In fact, I used to do a different theme in every room of my house! One was a French room, one was a New York room (a tribute to my years in NYC as an aspiring actress), but my favorite room was a shabby chic room with seashells. After being a stay-at-home mom for a few years, I decided I had to get back to work. But no - not back to an office! I wanted my own business. I started out years ago "shabby chicing" antique cottage pieces and accenting with vintage accessories and seashells. I sold my wares in antique stores on the Jersey shore. But I had a wonderful dream of opening my own store, and nine years ago, it finally came true! I opened a store, first in Asbury Park, NJ, then in Long Branch, NJ, followed by Red Bank, NJ and named it "Candy's Cottage Coastal Living." However, I don't sell candy (despite lots of people coming in looking for salt water taffy lol)! I sell all things coastal because that is where my true passion lies. I create handmade home decor using seashells and other natural materials found at the beach. I carry coastal inspired home decor and put seashells on just about everything! But my proudest work has been a stunning shell and coral chandelier that I made and hung over a driftwood table in my store (until it sold!). In addition, I also make my own coastal jewelry, which has been lots of fun! I really am living my dream - A Coastal Life!!
