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.

Coastal Home Decor

Oh yes, you read that right, my ocean loving beachy friends!

I am adding a new section to my Etsy shop! Seashell Home Decor!

I've actually had the supplies for a few months, and finally decided on which shells to use.

Check out my ceiling fan/light pulls!
 This Atlantic Cockle also has a crystal dangle on the inside/other side, too.
This is a nice size shell, not too big, but not a little thing either.

Fighting Conchs make awesome fan/light pulls...
With dangles made of conch shell, and little freshwater pearls.
Love the conchs! I made 2 of these...
One dark, and one light. The light color one is my personal favorite.

I also made doubles of Sharks Eye Moon Snail shells with different dangles on each one.
This one has freshwater pearls and a Sand Opal Swarovski Crystal bicone.
This one has been adorned with a single freshwater pearl, and Pacific Blue Opal Crystals. These are nice and big, too!

My next doubles are Sunray Venus shells.
This seashell fan pull has rubber coated acrylic beads, and a palm wood bead.
But this is my favorite of these! Freshwater pearls, wooden beads, and an Opal crystal. It's the same size as the first Sunray Venus. Hubby tried to snag these for our fans...the fan/light in our livingroom doesn't have any chain pulls. It's completely remote control operated. LOL!!!!
I do have fans in the Florida room with chain pulls...I'll make one just for him!

Last, but not least by any means...
a good size Olive Shell with freshwater baroque pearls, and Topaz crystals.
See the little blemish where it met with something in the depths below? Maybe a predator, or maybe a rock?
It doesn't take away from it's beauty or usefulness. I like this color combo, too.

These aren't in my Etsy shop yet. I wanted to debut them here for you first!
If you want to call dibs on them now, let me know and I'll reserve them as I list them.

I am one sale away from 100 sales in my Etsy shop! WOO HOO!
That 100th sale will get a freebie!

I'm also trying to think of a prize for a giveaway should I ever reach that 100th Follower!

I am so very thankful to each one of you, and I'd like to show my appreciation for your participation.

I love my beachy friends!

What would YOU like for a giveaway prize?

I have some new accessories coming up. Some are listed, and some are not.... and they aren't all hair accessories either!

See you tomorrow!

I love the fan pulls! How neat they will look on your fans! Are you going to put them in your shop? Well...I just had to follow again. I was one of your first followers and that started us on a special friendship. And this morning I asked my hubby if I logged in my other blog if I could follow with it...and he said...give it a try! So that was FUN! I would try to be the one to put in an Etsy order but I'll let someone else have that honor. You know how much I love your blog...your jewelry and our friendship! Enjoy your day...I hope you got some rain!
