Ocean, Beach & Shell Jewelry

Ancient mariners fashioned shells and starfish into beautiful keepsakes for their loved ones at home during slow times at sea. Sailors’ Valentines originally were made from a wood backdrop with different size and shape shells in a colorful pattern that had a rope outer edge. My sailors’ valentines are made with different colored gold shells and stones mixed with pearls and a gold rope outer edge. I do not put a solid gold backing to these pieces of jewelry, I like the look of either skin or fabric behind the design for more texture. Each of these “Sailors’ Valentines” reminds one of the sea. One client calls these shell and stone design combinations “Mermaid Designs”. No matter what you might decide to call them, these magical creations of jewelry are regal!

The Shell Neck Ribbons shown below come in various colors and this is the sheer neck ribbon, back view. Tie each ribbon centered on the back of the neck for the front shell to remain centered. You can make each side of the bow a bit different in length if you like the look of uneven ends. You decide what size bow to have as well and that gives you the amount of ribbon draping down the back.
