Shell Art

I've been playing around making shell art for the shop.  It's fun, but
takes unique bottles and lots of different shells to get the perfect fit.  It
took quite awhile to collect enough of each to make these fun creations.
Here is a set of three blue bottles that look so pretty, especially when 
light is shining through them.


The shell art is all at the store right now, but whatever doesn't sell is
coming back to live with me, especially these three.


This creation is a combination of shells that I hot glued onto
this lovely candle holder.


These were all done with aqua colored bottles and shells that
are warm shades of brown.
 

But this one is my favorite ~ a candle holder I found on clearance
and a lovely piece of coral I picked up at a yard sale.  They
look like they were picked right out of the ocean.

You are so right - that coral and candlestick are a perfect match!!

Bill and I put one of our benches back together tonight- we are having a bee keeper BBQ next month here at the house and need to get things spruced up a tad- actually alot but think a tad is all we have time for!

Hi Cindy! Your bottles are lovely. I am going through an artistic phase of making altered bottles myself, although they don't have a beach theme. If I was lucky enough to live in a coastal state I would totally put these in my home!! On another note... good luck with your Caromal Colors paint. I'm sure you will find it as fun to work with as I did. :)
xo,
Karen
