Siesta Key Seashell Art a Little Piece of Paradise

136 views

Published on

http://SiestaKeyFarmersMarket.org My name is Jeanne Heere. I moved to Sarasota in 1981. I have always loved the beach and looking for shells. I first started doing shell mirrors in the early 80's and sold by word of mouth.

In 2012 I gave up the corporate world and was looking for a less stressful life and started doing shell crafts again. I found the Siesta Key market a perfect place to market my artwork since ALL the shells are hand picked from the local beaches.

Each item is handcrafted with shells I find myself here on Siesta key. I have a wide variety of hand crafted art pieces for you to enjoy! My creations include mirrors, frames, wooden crosses, driftwood crosses, bikini star magnets, nite lights, treasure bottles, wine glass charms, lamp finials, fan pulls, and letters and other hand crafted shell treasures. Custom orders are available!!

What about this Shell-Rimmed Mirrors?

  7. 7. What about this Shell-Rimmed Mirrors? Perhaps the only thing more beautiful than a single shell is a collection of them. To balance the composition of this heavily adorned mirror and simplify the process of arranging the shells, I work in layers.
  8. 8. I arrange the largest shells on the mirror frame first, then, working from largest to smallest, fit shells into the remaining spaces until the frame is covered.
  9. 9. I first, group the shells by size. Position the largest shells at even intervals around the frame, then fill in with the next smallest shells. One at a time, pick up each shell and glue it down. Layer on smaller shells until even the tiniest areas are covered. Now Let’s View Some of My Creations!!
