About NorthShoreShells

On Etsy since 2009

🌈Aloha from Hawaii🌈

I started this shop as rehab for a disability and I have been freediving and making ocean-themed jewelry and gifts ever since (1996)! Craft supplies were added in 2016, a huge improvement to my shop's performance.
I let my imagination run free and craft all sorts of shell and seaglass designs for jewelry designers, local stores and and for creative custom orders.
I also make fan pulls, suncatchers, jewelry boxes, picture frames, magnets, and sell bulk shells (including the well-loved Sunrise Shell) and stock designer-cut gemstone cabochons for your crafting projects or events.
Drilling of your shells and seaglass is available for a reasonable fee.
I enjoy sharing the beauty of Hawaii and of the ocean to my great customers.
I hope you enjoy browsing and will contact me with any questions.
Mahalo for visiting! 🌈🙋‍♀️🌊🐚🌴

Is it real?

Everything I am offering in my Etsy store comes from the beautiful Pacific Ocean, the warm waters off of of the island of Oahu, state of Hawaii. Occasionally I will offer sea glass from other parts of the world. But everything sold here is authentic, surf tumbled, beach-found or a natural product of the Earth.
Nothing is manufactured or fabricated except for my gemstone cabochons which have been altered through lapidary work and are in no way imitation, they are actual gemstones shaped by hand using machines.
