Shellboxes


Here are a couple of products my Mom is creating for letteredolive.com.
All of the shells were hand-picked by my Mom, from the Gulf Coast, and are gorgeously displayed "specimen-style" in your choice of distressed black, distressed white or teak wood shadowbox frame.









This first style of Shellbox will include a laminated "key" that lists the names of all the shells included. We like to lay it on top of the shadowbox and let the shell-tipped satin ribbon hang down that side, like this...





The second style of Shellbox looks like this:













As soon as I have photos of a Distressed black Shellbox, I'll post photos here.

In the meantime...we'd love to hear what you think of them!

Beautiful! Love both! Equally as lovely. And I think they each work well with specific design styles. Got a good mix going!

Can you list prices, Layla? I'm thinking of Christmas gifts and wonder if you intend to list prices or if we need to email you.
