she sells seashells

There's such a fine line between elegant shell designs and those that are kitsch appearing as though they came out of a little shell shop on The Redondo Pier.
But when you see the real deal, you know the difference {and it's not just the sticker reading 'made in china'}
Heather Kendall Designs, is the real deal and her work is truly, elegant {'shell-egant', shall we say?}
Kendall's work can be found in beach homes spanning the country from L.A. to Nantucket and some of those beach-less, beach houses in between. Custom orders are welcome and encouraged. Heather Kendall Designs

I adore the bust of the lady with her shell crown. Wonderful!

I have such a weakness for this. Maybe my shell bust needs a soul sister.

Maya at Completely Coastal just did a post today on shell art as well. And you are so right - there is a huge difference between the good and bad. Meanwhile, I have a shell project waiting to start - maybe this will inspire me. Or scare me off!

Wow. Really beautiful. I checked out the artist's website... LOVE the busts, and the shell-encrusted mantels are pretty amazing too.

I live near the beach most of my life, so I can appreciate great sea shell designs, perhaps even more so than other designers. The chandelier, especially, begs to be featured in a nature theme room.
