Created with seashells, sand and pebbles found on my walks on the beaches of the North Shore of MA. Plum Island, Sandy Point Beach, Winter Island and Collins Cove.
A serene Sea Faery Baby nesting in a crab claw inside a Moon Snail seashell. Its face is handsculpted and painted ecofriendly paper clay.
Adorned with fuchsia purple and green sea moss. Genuine freshwater pearls and sparkling silver crystal rhinestones with fairy sea snail shells and sand reflect tiny rainbows of light when placed in sunlight.
The base is a large European Oyster seashell with smaller pieces of oyster shells along with more fairy sea snail shells, sand and a red crab. All seashells are real and have been hand collected on my visits to the beach.
Snail Shells are considered a symbol of rebirth and transition. Their whirled shape of a shell represents the circle of life and the tides of the moon. Because snails have shells, it they also remind us of boundaries and to protect ourselves. Snail shells are the perfect example of Sacred Geometry too.
Spiritually pearls soothe the body, mind and soul while healing negativity. They are a symbol of rebirth, birth, new beginnings. The Chinese believe pearls aid in fertility as the help balance the body’s natural rhythms and hormone levels with lunar cycles. They are considered yin and a sign of the Moon.
Oyster prefers to stay put for much of its life. They symbolize the need to be still, peaceful, meditate and serenity. Many cultures revere the oyster as an aphrodisiac since Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love was born from the foam of the sea. Classical paintings depict her birth on top of a seashell. Oysters also give birth to pearls which are associated with lunar forces, the moon and tides.
Crab is associated with magical powers. Able to shed its shell as they grow, symbolizing rebirth and change. They walk sideways – a reminder to side step danger or messy situations. Crab is the symbol of the astrological sign Cancer which is ruled by the Moon.
This piece was difficult to capture via photography! Measures about 4 inches high and about 4.25 inches wide. Free standing and ready to place on a table, shelf or sea altar.
All crystals, seashells, pearls and gemstones are saged and charged with Reiki.
A unique baby shower gift, water sign birthday gift or treasure for your favorite mermaid. Crabs are the symbol for the astrological sign Cancer.
