Vintage Sea Shell Collection, Assemblage Art, Beach Décor, Craft Project
“She shells she sells by the seashore . . . See shells she shell . . . She shell . . . Dadgummet! Can’t never get that sayin’ right, and haven’t had a drop of wine. Maybe that’s the problem! Gramma Kakie
This vintage collection of sea shells will get you trying to recite the famous tongue twister, or at least it will inspire you to create something wonderful for your beach house! Some of the 10 shells in this listing were collected years ago on the Texas Gulf Coast while visiting the beach with my family. My favorite is the large white shell that looks like linen texture.
Use them in your jewelry creations or art projects. I love to make picture frames and covered boxes. The last photo shows a sea shell frame that I made (frame and shells in final photo not included). But they are awesome on their own, displayed in a dish on top of some sand.
My all-time favorite seashell display I created for a client in Dallas. It was an antique concrete seahorse bird bath, filled with sand, scattered with seashells, with a glass top. It was used as a bedside table.
The largest shell (white linen) measures about 2.5 inches by about 2 inches. The smallest shell measures ¾ inches by ¾ inches.
