My mom LOVES it! It looks exactly like the picture, it shipped super fast, and the packaging protected the night light super well (considering how fragile and thin the sea urchin is). Great work!

People have always enjoyed displaying their beach mementos as a reminder of wonderful travels to the sea. The appeal of this timeless style has inspired not only Pacific Islanders, but has also been incorporated into English country homes, Victorian cottages, and Greek villas.

All of my items are handmade by me in the USA in my non-smoking, dog-friendly studio. I help support small family businesses in the Pacific region that collect shells and beach glass to give me a wide range of options in shells and glass colors.

International shipping is possible, please contact me for rates/policies.

Refunds and Exchanges
Return Policy:

I want my customers to be happy with the items they purchase, so I package very securely and have yet to have a problem of breakage or damage. Do note, that pieces may have less than perfect shells deliberately incorporated into the design and that vintage items have a 'shabby chic' element to them. Also, some shedding of small shells/embellishments is normal and should not be considered damage. Please contact me if that is a concern for you. If your piece arrives with damage, please contact me to arrange for a return and within 14 days of arrival.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom Orders:
If you see something you like but want to change the color, want specific shells, or beach glass colors, just let me know. I welcome the creativity involved in custom work.
