Hand picked from the depths of salem harbor in massachusetts, this scallop shell has been meticulously cleaned, polished, painted, and sealed by nightingale arts. Nightingale's heidi chouinard has used acrylic medium to paint a shining silver star that glitters when the light changes. It stands out with holiday glitz against a metallic copper background. The outside of the shell has been painted a matching copper, and the painting is protected with a coat of glossy sealer. The shell hangs by a flexible gold colored wire that has been twisted and wrapped by hand.
A single pearl is strung on the wire, visible on the outside. Measuring roughly 4" x 5.5", this scallop shell ornament has a unique sense of seaside new england to add to your tree. The ornament is reversible and can be hung any way you wish - whatever side suits your tree best while we created our shell ornaments with christmas trees in mind, we think they would make merry decor hanging on your wall as well.
