Shellboxes

I’m pumped to announce the latest Lettered Cottage shop creation- the Shellbox!

These “works of heart” are created by my Mom , Jude, and this is how she describes them-

Mom_Description

Shellboxes are available in three finishes. Honey maple, distressed black, and distressed white. (Edited to add: The honey maple and distressed white are currently unavailable!)

Frame Corners

Each Shellbox measures 15.5”W x 15.5”H x 2” D.

Here is an example of the Honey Maple Shellbox:

Here is an example of the White Shellbox:

My Mom spends several fulfilling hours creating each one-of-a-kind Shellbox, which encapsulate her passion for art, and her love of the sea. This timeless art form bonds a part of the artist, with a part of the world, for eternity. The back of each box is numbered, and hand-signed by Jude.

Testimonials from Shellbox customers:

Hi Jude,
I wanted to tell you how much I LOVE the shellbox. It came today, and all of the shells are perfectly in place. It reminds me of my mother. We lived in Bermuda for a number of years, and she used to collect shells. I have no idea what happened to her collection, but your work brought those memories back for me so clearly. Thank you.I’m not sure where I’m going to hang it yet, but I’ve always heard that when you see something you love, buy it and worry about where it goes later!

Cheers,
Reneé- Arlington, VA

Dear Jude,

Here is my daughter with the shellbox. We both love it! It is perfect for her room (she loves the sea). It was beautifully packaged too. I am honored to be your first online customer. :-)

Jude, I received my Honey Maple Shellbox today, and I was delighted! The Honey Maple frame really brings out the colors in the shells! Although I live in KY, my dream is to retire to the beach. The beach and the ocean feed my soul. I sigh a breath of contentment as I look at my Shellbox…Thank you so much for your creation!

    Thanks to all who have purchased one of my shellboxes! Availability of boxes seems to vary monthly at the hobby stores, so please be sure to check the current colors in stock at the beginning of this post.

    Still shelling,
    Jude : )

    Hello! I love this adorable Shellbox! If you ever have it in the distressed white again please let me know & I will purchase it!

      Since so many friends have been requesting WHITE, I have been considering purchasing some more simple white framed shadowboxes – just a flat 1″ wide metal frame (still 12″x12″). Would you be interested in this, or prefer to wait for the distressed wood boxes? I think the price will be just slightly less. Thanks for your input! Jude

        I think I would prefer to wait for more white distressed wood boxes to come in. The distressed look adds to the charm of the piece, giving the design more of a elegant nautical feel. But that is just my opinion :) .. I’ll be waiting!
