Seashells

The shells are simply beautiful. Processed, the mollusk’s lustrous, iridescent shell shimmers like a gemstone. Depending on the angle of light, its color dances about now pink, now blue, now silver, now white, now purple, now green, now gold. The luminous quality and coloring of every shell is extraordinary and unique. The process of cutting and shaping and grinding and polishing the shells renders them truly magnificent.

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 the artisan needs to know. Practice, patience and passion are requisite to becoming a true master.

Seashells have been used as human adornment and jewellery since prehistory beads, buttons, brooches, hair combs, rings. By virtue of the sheer hardness of the shells and typically sharp edges, mollusks have been used as tools, scrapers, blades, clasps. They have also been used as service ware cups, bowls, ladles, spoons, even troughs. Water-based polish. For indoor use only. Shells are used in various products like vases, pillars, panels, washbasins, bowls, boxes and jewellery.
