sea treasures

The first time I ever picked up a sea shell on the beach was when I visited Florida on my road trip this past winter. I had never been to the sea/gulf/ocean before, so I was simply overjoyed to hear the sound of the waves, to see all the wildlife, to swim in the salt water, and to discover all the pretty shells under the water and up on the shore. This started a huuuuuuuge obsession! I want to wear them, decorate my home with them, and learn everything about them. I've got the shelling bug! 

I went antiquing with my mom this past weekend when she came up for a visit, and in one of the booths I found some pretty shells that had been cut in cross sections. Now, after finding all the pretty things on the beach I promised myself that I would never buy seashells again - finding them myself is so much cooler and makes them a lot more special. However, since these sliced shells aren't in the state I'd find them in on the beach, I decided to buy some. I'm having so much fun making things with them! Here are a few of my favorites - a few necklaces and a sea witch crown. I thought they went well with these super gorgeous rings I picked up at a shop on St. Simon's Island (Georgia!).

Incredible photography!!!! I love the way you've edited them - and I adore shells too.

My mum actually just went on a romantic (shudder) weekend away with my father and brought me back a shell necklace and a shell ring! Love them <3

I love the beach for finding amazing shells.. they are so beautiful ... I love starfish..

I wanted to thank you for your very sweet comment... it is a rough week... tomorrow will be the hardest, it is 'his' birthday and I won't be able to be a part of it...
It's sad.. very sad... but oh well.. what can I do... nothing, just move on... somehow..

the shell crown is amazing! I love it, you look like a genuine mermaid! and yes, the ocean is the best place ever! the look, the sound, the smell, the wind... It's a shame I don't live near the beach myself, but I've fallen in love with it too, just like you :)

I agree, finding seashells is so much more exciting than buying them. I love these images, so pretty!
