We gather only open shells . We collect a great variety of sizes in order to graduate them to creating the effect of a real tree. Our shells have a “mother of pearl “ layer which we uncover through a 4 step process, the last step being the rubbing of each shell bringing out the pearly glowing patina. I often find tiny pearls attached in this layer! ( see link about “pearls” ) These shells are completely natural . There is no shellac or product to make them glow. This is the beauty of our trees! And we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoy making them for you.
It is becoming increasingly more difficult to find our mussel shells. "Mussel population is down by as much as 60% in Maine! Please read the following article by clicking on the link below:
