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.

Seashell Bracelets

I'm really loving bracelets right now! They are fun, and oh so different from anything I have found in shops! My fave is still the Mother of Pearl Shell Bracelet. The most recent shell bracelets are~

The Slipper Shell Bracelet

The slipper shell gets it's name from what it looks like on the underside (inside?) It looks like a slipper, you know~ the kind you wear.
I have found slippers in various sizes, from pinky nail size, to about 2 1/2 inches. The colors vary also, I have found white, lt.brown, dark brown, and everything in between! They are a fun, cute shell!

Yellow Hued Cockle Shell Bracelet~

This is an unusual cockle shell! It has some calico markings, along with a yellow hued stripe through the middle.

The honey colored Topaz faceted beads, and gold oval toggle go amazingly well with this shell!

These will soon be listed on Etsy!

Adustable Seashell Bracelet

Are you ready for your beachy vacation? This Pretty in Pinks adjustable seashell bracelet would be just the right touch to your beach or cruise attire! I found these pretty pink calico scallops at my fave Gulf Coast beach! It's such a nice, peaceful beach, with very few people at any given time. It's a great shelling spot, and not too far from home! Czech faceted fire polished beads with AB finish, dance between the shells, and an 8mm Swarovski Crystal with 2xAB dangles from the end.Depending on wrist size, you may get a shell in your dangle! Gold plated findings accent this pretty pink shell-y bracelet. Lobster clasp closure. One size fits most! 11 1/2" full length end to end. Can be clasped at any jump ring on the bracelet!

Seashell Charm Bracelet

This shell-y bracelet has several small white shells of various kinds, mingling together with white and aqua beads, blue zircon crystals w/AB, aqua capiz shell charms, and a starfish charm. Little bumpy silver balls make cute little dangle charms reminding me of sea urchins, and match the starfish charm!

I love the way this feels on my wrist! It makes a lovely sound as the shells and beads move against each other. This is a fun addition to my collection!

Mother Of Pearl Shell Bracelet

This large, 1 1/2" x 2" MOP oyster shell takes center stage in this regal pearl bracelet! This shell was an awesome find at my fave Gulf Coast beach! This amazing shell, handcrafted by mother nature herself, and brought to it's full lustrous beauty, with a little artistry on my part.

I finished this shell in triple thick gloss finish to bring out the luster of the MOP. The dusky purple is accented by lovely peacock pearls, and white freshwater pearls, with corrugated gold plated beads and a cool over-sized bamboo look gold toggle.
