Hand Crafted Sailors' Valentines and Seashell Art
Hand made by artisan Sharlene Tessler, each Sailors' Valentine and Seashell Bouquet she creates is a true labor of love. These timeless and intricate pieces are made with 100% authentic seashells and other treasures from the sea. The backdrop is made from all natural fibers which preserve the delicate colors of the shells and accentual the detail involved. Encased in stained and painted wood frames, these works of art are protected and ready to display.
At the 2011 Sanibel Shell Show, Sharlene placed first for her Sailor's Valentine in the medium size category as a professional. At the 2009 Philadelphia Shell Show, Sharlene placed third as a professional for her six inch contemporary Sailor's Valentine as well as placing third with her shell picture.
