I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

Valentine's Seashell Jewelry

When I was sorting some shells into matching pairs, I came across 4 that were so close in color! Two that were the same size (for earrings) and 2 in perfect sizes for a necklace, and a bracelet. That, my dear friends, is what I have been working on. Some Valentine Seashell Jewelry!

And it just so happens that these Calico Scallop shells are reddish pink and white! They are the closest I've ever seen calico's to being red. Usually they are pink, purple, burgundy, or even orangey, or yellow.

When I saw they did match so well, and looked great with red beads, I knew I had my Valentine's Day shells for this year.

Valentine Seashell Necklace
I love these cultured freshwater heart shaped pearls! It makes a darling little charm for this sweetheart of a seashell necklace. The sterling silver looks fab with the red. LOVE!

Valentine Seashell Earrings
These sweet little shells are darling little dangles to match the necklace. You know I've hidden something behind those shells! That's why they aren't laying flat ;)

Valentine Seashell Bracelet
I have several of the heart shaped pearls in this bracelet, and it was actually the first piece I made. The clasp is magnetic, and has little hearts engraved/stamped into it.

Now...what to do with all of those leftover silver heart beads???
I better start brainstorming!

Another winning combination! The heart shaped beads and pearls would make lovely BRIDE jewelry for a wedding.

Those are sooo cute! Definitely would make some bride very happy. That's a great suggestion. You'll think of something to do with the left over beads!
