About

From just surviving to Loving my life work!!

Welcome to my corner of seaside bliss.....

I was born and raised in California, mostly Northern California until I moved to the central coastal area of San Diego in 1999. I was newly re-married and was so excited about living 5 minutes from the beach. Settling in and enjoying some of the most gorgeous country in God's green earth, I could not see anywhere much of any kind of seashell art, which I thought was very strange considering where I lived. I thought it would be all over, but no it was not. I have always been a seashell lover, venturing into any seashell shop I came across, just mezmerised by the beauty and wonder of these wonderfully made little objects. I kept saying to my BFF, I'm going to make a seashell wreath one of these days, and move to Maui. She encouraged me in this but needless to say it did not happen. Just couldn't up and move my kids to Hawaii. I was a single mom, raising my 3 kids on my own after their father passed away at a very young age. Stability was what they needed, heck with my needs. Anyways I never got to that wreath, or moving....

The years passed, My kids were up and out of the house by this time, I had stayed in very boring jobs, in medical office management, insurance mgmt., mom, and household CEO....It was what I did, no regrets, just a longing for something other.

In 1997 met a new person, we fell in love and married in 1998. A fresh start we thought, sell the house, quit our jobs, and moved smack down to San Diego Ca. It was gorgeous, our house was being built so it was apartment living for 3 months, I did a lot of roaming the beaches, and the towns, searching out and finding my shopping trips to be a little redundant....

I picked up a magazine one day with Christie Brinkley on the cover, the title stated she was a "seashell artist"....I was very interested, and that article is what gave me the incentive to really try this art for myself. I started out very slow, with a few shells and made my first box. I loved it, so then I made a few for friends, they loved them. I thought I could never sell these things...

In 2003 we missed our families so much we decided to move back to No. Ca. From then on my art, talent and passion for designing shell art has evolved to what it is today. Around 2008 I decided to start selling online, etsy was introduced to me. I thought it was a fantastic resource to try out my shop. It took me months to get everything up and running, and I am still striving to impove my shop and product every chance I get. Each item is a treasure, a one of a kind piece to keep a lifetime, or give as a special gift. I see in the future to expand to different areas, I've done retail sales, and thinking of doing shows a couple times a year, but I'm still just wanting to be the artist, selling online.

I specialize in custom orders for Wedding Photo Frames, Wedding Card Holder Boxes, Shell Boxes, Shell encrusted Photo Frame Albums...I really love to make a brides dream or vision of that special item she needs for her beach wedding come true. I love the happy endings, and so many of my customers send me pics. and emails of how they used my items, and how much they love them. This is the most gratifying part of this lovely job..

First and foremost my gifting is God given and used for His glory, the seashell is a wonderous object God uses to bring forth his beauty, grace and healing in so many. Each one of my designs are handcrafted and made with love and care, which will arrive at your door for many years of enjoyment....

Customer service is very important to me and I do strive to please you in any way I can, some things are impossible, but I haven't come across any yet. I welcome your ideas and suggestions for that special custom piece you order, and I always can imagine the look on your face when you open up your box. I so enjoy friends and family coming into my studio and leaving with that something special, a gift for a friend, and treasure for their beach house retreat, an album for that special beach vacation.

I did finally get around to making that seashell wreath I talked of long ago, it hangs on my front door now, plus a few more inside the house, and a few hanging on others walls and doors around the US. "Maui" that's an option too we often talk of retiring over there and just doing our thing. I certainly could make a lot more profit there doing what I love, but it's not about profit for me, it's about passion and making people happy........ What a blessing when you are doing what you are called to do!!!

Hoping you will visit my shop and find a treasure for yourself, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any requests, questions or custom order needs.....
Happy Shelling....

    Welcome to my Divine Seashell World. I am owner and self taught artist doing shell work for around 13 yrs. Finally in this stage of life finding my passion and calling it "work"....My designs are all one of a kind truly from my heart to yours....

Shop policies

Last updated on April 7, 2016
Each one of my designs is beautifully crafted with many different seashells, sea glass, faux pearls, crystals, with complimentary color schemes. I am learning the names of the seashells currently, but am not an expert on this yet. I hope they resemble a treasure chest sitting on the bottom of the ocean with the shells just spilling over it in all their splendor. It is a God given talent and each design is a surprise to even me until it reaches completion.

When it leaves my door on it's way to yours, I will strive to keep it safe to reach your home in the original condition. My art items are hand crafted one of a kind by me in my studio which is located in my home. My home is smoke free, I do have a Minature Schnauzer who rules this domain,(he thinks) but he is hypho-allergenic and I have never seen or heard of anyone having an allergy problem from this breed of dog, I myself have severe allergies, but none with my little guy.
All items are signed and dated when made, except if it is impossible to do so on the particular material I use. Custom orders will be completed in a very timely manner and shipped within a few days of time of completion. I'm hoping you will find something today to treasure....
