- Suzanne on First Seen at the Sarasota Shell Show Feb. 17-19, 2012
Hope to see you at the Sarasota Shell Show 2013. The dates are Feb. 1,2,3. There will be vendors with treasures to sell as well as artistic and scientific exhibits to be judged.
The Sanibel Shell Fair Dates are March 7,8,9 – 2013.
The Sanibel Shell Show included shell art and shell specimens from around the world. I was pleased to be awarded a blue ribbon for the shell table pictured. It was great to see old friends and make new ones…and of course collect many beautiful shells for future projects.
One of my newer valentines is available for purchase. This 10″ sailors valentine is titled Paua Jewels. Look close to see the detailed sea stars as flower centers around the jeweled paua shell heart in the center. Contact me for pricing.
Upcoming shell shows I will be attending include Sarasota Shell Show Feb.17-19 and Sanibel Shell Show March 1-3. Hope to see you there.
I will be exhibiting my newest sailor’s valentines at the Sarasota Shell Show Feb. 11-13 and the Sanibel Shell Show March 3-5. Both shows are in Florida. There will be scientific exhibits as well as artistic displays at both shows. In Sarasota I have entered my Sailor’s Valentine “Ship of Dreams” to be judged. And at the Sanibel Shell Show I have entered 3 valentines to be judged ”Ship of Dreams”, “Bits & Pieces” and “Floral Heart”. Vendors will be at both shows with many specimen and craft shells for sale. But, walking the beaches will always be the most rewarding way to collect shells.
