“ The Crab “ Serenity Shells
Oysters open completely when the moon is full; and when the crab sees one it throws a piece of stone or seaweed into it and the oyster cannot close again so that it serves the crab for meat. Such is the fate of him who opens his mouth too much and thereby puts himself at the mercy of the listener. Leonardo da Vinci
From the Artist: We get our shells from local fisherman here at the Jersey Shore , who collect them after they are done with what they need and we pick them up every week. We then get them home, clean them, dry them and sort through which ones we will be able to use. The ones that I can't use, they will be ground up for our garden in the backyard. I then decorate them with recycled napkins. Then they are glazed and painted with gold liquid on the edges.
Shells will NOT be the same size or shape as the one listed but very close. They will all be different that's what makes them so special. Shell sizes will vary. they will be from 2 1/2- 5 inches.
