I specialize in seashell flowers, sculptures and ornaments as well as vintage shell art restorations. I use industrial adhesives on all of my work to ensure each piece will be cherished for a lifetime.

 Most items in gallery can be ordered/reproduced. 

items available for purchase on Etsy  at www.etsy.com/shop/Shellestial

 

I work out of a large studio in my family home in Anchorage, Alaksa. Studio visits are by appointment/invitation only. Please contact via email  Shellestial_Rae@yahoo.com.

All seashells are non-endangered and collected only after the mollusks have been eaten from their shell. Purchased shells come only from companies that adhere to U.S. and International laws and follow all rules and regulations of the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) International agreement.

Some shells have been polished to expose their mother of pearl layer, bleached, or dyed.
