Sailor's Valentines

Sailor

Sailor's valentines are typically octagonal glass-fronted boxes displaying designs composed of thousands of small seashells.  They were originally made in the 1800s, mostly on the island of Barbados, and were purchased by sailors to bring home to their loved ones after long voyages at sea.

My award winning valentines are handcrafted in the finest handmade cases and each shell is individually placed to produce beautiful heirloom works of art. Please contact me for more information and photos of my other valentines.
