The sweetest seashell whale! And excellent shell work by this wonderful artist and most awesome Etsy seller. Items were packed brilliantly well, very securely, and were shipped quickly and wrapped beautifully -- an absolute delight to receive!

One of my top favorite Etsy purchases e. v. e. r. Such a dear and dreamy little seashell sailboat, evoking imaginings of magical sea voyages. This artist's shell work is simply excellent -- so many tiny tiny shells, so neatly and tidily placed in perfect order. It's quite amazing to see in person. So much care goes into this type of work, and there is nothing like owning a one-of-a-kind vintage seashell-embellished art piece like this, which so much heart, soul and effort clearly went into. And its colors are stunning, with shades of both sunrise and twilight! I swoon. It's a little dream of vessel for sure, and this seasoul couldn't be happier! Thank you again, dear Machel. xoxo

Another spectacular vintage seashell creation by this amazingly talented shellwork artist. Her care and placement of these tiny and unique shells is incredibly impressive. They are perfectly lined up and arranged, and it takes a lot of time, not to mention heart and passion, to make such creations -- making the ownership of these one-of-a-kind pieces that much more special and meaningful. They are true treasures. And I am particularly excited about this one, as it is a surprise anniversary gift from this mermaid-at-heart to my sailor husband, celebrating our marriage by the sea, and it will make the most romantically nautical keepsake. Thank you, Machel for such treasures (and my sweet little note and surprise gift as well) -- I adore them all, and you too! :) xoxo

About

Everything about the sea draws me in...

I started making seashell boxes about 6 years ago, I amassed an enormous collection of shells from my grandmother and my own travels. I've been collecting from the shores since I was a little girl, I grew up in South Florida so finding treasures after hurricanes and other storms was never a problem.

Now I live in Seattle and work as a Zoologist teaching part-time, I have had a shop on Etsy for a few years with my photography: www.etsy.com/shop/machelspencePHOTO and have sold quite a few shell boxes through that shop but thought it was time for the shell art to have it's very own shop to shine in!

The shell boxes take me hours upon hours to create using tweezers to place each seashell on individually with great care. I live in West Seattle with my daughter and husband.
