Beautiful seashell custom frame for Anniversary. The craftsmanship and shell selection are wonderful. It was a pleasure working with Vivian to get exactly what I was looking for in a shell frame. Thanks.

Welcome to madebymano. As you can see these are not your mother’s traditional seashell mirrors. Each one is made by me and named after the special beach that inspired it.

Every beach has a different story to tell and I use those tales as my inspiration to create my one-of-a-kind seashell mirrors and frames. Sometimes even a special seashell will whisper a story that becomes my creative spark.

I’m happy to create a custom piece in honor of your favorite beach. Please contact me with your ideas and we’ll work together to create something exceptional. Every time you look at it you’ll be transported back to that special place.

Additional policies and FAQs
All frames and mirrors are handmade by me, Vivian, in a smoke free environment surrounded by positive energy, good vibes and the occasional woof from my dog Diva.

I welcome custom orders and will work with you closely to make sure you’re happy. Once we agree on all aspects of the design, materials and timeline, in writing, I will require full pre-payment. I need pre-payment on custom orders as I may have to purchase items that I may not normally have in stock.

I never use hot glue. I use a product that is waterproof and flexible however please never soak your frame or mirror in cleaning products. You may clean the shells with a very soft brush or may polish the shells using a soft cloth.

When cleaning the mirror portion be sure to spray Windex (or a similar product) onto a paper towel first then wipe the mirror clean.

Please take care when handling as many shells can have sharp or jagged edges.
