Seashell

Seashell

Seashells are the abundant armours of the sea. They protect the extremely vulnerable molluscs, which are living inside it and keep them safe from life-threatening dangers around them. But apart from that, haven’t we all experienced memorable times while searching seashells? It’s just that that makes seashell one of those typical feel good products. They look incredibly beautiful, bring back memories and put a smile on people’s face.

Seashells have been used as human adornments and jewellery since prehistory. They were used for items such as beads, buttons, brooches, hair combs and rings. Shell necklaces have been found in Stone Age graves as far inland as the Dordogne Valley in France.

Seashells textures and uniqueness make them very decorative and suitable for finishing a variety of objects, like bowls, vases and lamps. Each and every object will shimmer like a treasure of the sea and truly come alive.

There’s a surprising degree of variation in the shape, pattern and ornamentation of seashells. Reason for the exquisite colouring of a given species is not always clear.
Sometimes it is for its protection, as camouflage against predators. But just as often there doesn’t appear to be any practical reason at all. But one thing is sure: the shells are simply beautiful.

The process of cutting, shaping, grinding and polishing the Shells renders them magnificent. Large numbers of seashells in numerous colours and structures can be used to create inlays for mosaics, decorative walls, furniture, vases, boxes and accessories.

Processing seashells is a very hard and difficult task, which can only be carried out by an experienced specialist. Therefor a craftsperson relies on knowledge passed down from his ancestors and years of interned experience before he can claim mastery of this exceptional craft. No school can teach what these artisans need to know. Practice, patience and passion are key requirements to becoming a true master.
