**What started as a tradition of making shell frames for our vacation photos has developed into a full time hobby that I love!!! Hope you will enjoy one of my shell creations.
I harvest all of the shells myself from various locations (Florida, Caribbean, & Grand Lake, Oklahoma). I will occasionally use supplemental shells purchased, but prefer to use my harvested shells in their natural state without any artificial shellac or such. I will, however, apply a thin coat of mineral oil to enhance natural shine.
I also like to try and identify the shells I find. I am, however, no expert on shell identification; but use various forms of media to try to identify them such as shell identification books and the internet. I will list the shells by name, and all you need to do is google them to identify the shells on your creation.
Also, I use a simple hobby glue gun to adhere the shells to the various structures. A few of these shells can come loose occasionally. Any household glue gun can easily reattach these loose shells. I prefer to avoid using any high powered glue that is hard or dangerous to work with, instead to use a glue that is safe for my end product.
Hope you will be pleased with your shell creation, and hope you enjoy what I love creating!!
