This large flower is made of layers of natural sea shells and is the perfect embellishment for a variety of projects.
A total of 16 shells make up this large flower embellishment. Each layer the shells get a bit smaller. A round piece of mica shell is the back of the piece which is flat.
The shells are gray ivory white in color…true-to-life colors of real sea shells.
It measures approximately 3 1/4" (8.2 cm) in diameter & is 3/4" (1.9 cm) tall to the tip of the small center shell.
This was found in a box of my grand-aunt’s “odds & ends”. I believe it is from an old jewelry box she had though I have not found the box. The piece of mica does have a small – tiny – hole so it could have been from a piece of jewelry.
It truly is a beautiful embellishment that would look lovely adorning many things from boxes, shelves, mirrors, or pocketbooks to becoming a wonderful piece of jewelry. The creative uses are endless.
