Our Creative Process:
- All natural components are ethically harvested on our own beach and woods. Any with living creatures inside are immediately released where we found them.
- The shells are meticulously cleaned inside and out and thoroughly dried in open air.
- The tufts of moss are also carefully cleansed, dried and aged.
- Shipping Note:
- As these pieces are delicate and fragile, they will ship via Priority Mail.
As Nature's Treasures vary, and because each piece is individually crafted by hand, none of these will be exactly alike.
