Growing up as a Jersey Girl and going to the “shore” every summer, I have a long standing love for the beach and all of the nature surrounding it. Having lived in Florida for over 20 years, I have spent more and more time at the beach with nature, the sea air, water and collecting shells and any other interesting things I may find!
I am now and always have been an ocean and beach girl with a hippie soul. Believe it or not, due to COVID I am finally doing what I love, making creations from years of collecting beach treasures! The neighborhood kids call me the "Shell Lady"! Every piece of art is handmade with shells that have been collected on the West Coast of Florida. No shells are purchased and nothing live is taken from their home.
Everything is handmade with love for nature and the sea. I am so excited to share my finds and hope that my creations will bring you, your family and friends the happiness, joy and peace that I feel in searching for the treasures and in creating “all things beach”.
The "Hippie Shell Lady"
Spending time on the beach walking, watching the water, collecting shells, snorkeling and feeling at one with nature is my Zen. CShells Beach Art pieces are the result of "Zen" moments and are directly influenced by all things beach and nature. I am grateful to be able to do this and am dedicated to preserving our beaches, oceans, and all of the amazing nature that live there. For that reason, I do NOT EVER remove living creatures from their homes for any reason.
Rather, I lovingly shell on the beaches and snorkel for shells, fossils and anything else interesting that may have been left by nature.
Beach art includes all things beach! Each piece is unique. Lots of time and love go into making each one of our creations. All of my products are made by hand and as such, variations will occur. I utilize various tools and materials including shells, wood & gifts from nature found while beachcombing. This is what makes each piece unique and ensures that your ocean treasure will not be duplicated.
I love to do special/customer orders so if you see something you would like and it sold, I can make something similar. Or if you have something specific in mind and don't see it, send me a message and I will work with you to make it happen!
If you would like me to go shelling for you, send a note and I would love to do that also!!
I LOVE what I do and are thrilled to share my passion with you.
