Here are two (2) large natural Cockle Sea Shells found in Gulf of Mexico waters on Marco Island, FL. I've hand painted the pair in soft blue with a pink trim and a metallic green with the sparkle of glitter!
Measurements: Large 4-1/2" long x 3-1/2" wide Smaller 3-1/2" long x 3" wide
Their large size are a very versatile decoration for your craft projects, terrariums, flower arrangements, table settings, etc. The size, shape and coloring give you lots of options for patterning your work.
Please Note: Even though the Shells have been coated with spray enamel, they are considered water resistant, not necessarily waterproof. The paint or glitter may smear or dissolve in liquid.
If you are interested in International delivery, please contact us for postal rates to your destination. The U.S. Postal Service charges a little more than listed for shipments to Alaska and Hawaii.
Your purchase will normally be sent within 2-3 days after payment via USPS, the US Postal Service. I usually ship using Priority Service which I find is safer going through the mails & is normally delivered within 2-3 days after acceptance at a post office (unless First Class Parcel is appropriate for the mailing). Priority does include a standard $50 insurance max value paid out if needed based on the price of the purchased item, the shipping cost is not included in the $50 insurance. If you prefer more insurance on your purchase, contact me and I will be able to give you a revised shipping cost.
It is the buyer's responsibility to make sure the shipping address(es) are correct both with etsy and Paypal and any credit card.
USPS shipments to Alaska, Hawaii or US Territories are a bit higher than noted in a listing. If you're interested in International delivery from the USA, please contact us for shipping costs to your intended destination.
If insurance is included in the shipment & there is breakage, the recipient of the package is required to bring the damaged item(s) and all packaging to their local post office for inspection. THE DECISION TO ALLOW A DAMAGE CLAIM IS AT THE DISCRETION OF USPS. If allowed, a starter file is entered there & I complete it on my end with the insurance receipt, etc.
International import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item's purchase price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to purchasing. Seller assumes no responsibility for interruption of delivery caused by non US postal or customs authorities.
As an FYI, the USPS' International shipping rates have gone up between 60% to 105% in recent years. Also, domestic mail prices within the US have increased but not as much as International shipping costs.
Payment accepted through PayPal, personal Credit Card or Etsy Gift Card; payment is due at time of purchase.
If you prefer to pay by credit card but don't have a PayPal account, choose the option 'PayPal' and then click the option 'pay by credit card'. If an order remains unpaid with 48 hours, I will have to end the sale.
Money Orders, Checks or Cash cannot be accepted, sorry.
