2011 Sanibel Shell Show First Place Winner

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Great News! I won a first place blue ribbon for my Sailor’s Valentine in the medium size category as a professional. It was an extremely competitive group of entries and I feel very honored to have won! There is a picture of the Valentine on my face book page. For those of you interested, all of the shells are natural except the Trochus around the outside edge and the dyed Baby Cups in the center of the flowers. The Sailors Valentine consists of Red Nerites, multi natural and colored Nut Clams, Atoll Nassa, Philippines Rice and Philippines Wheat accented withPhilippines Shark Eyes and Indian Marginellas.
