Seashell Mirrors

There's something about a seashell mirror that's a bit magical. I lean towards more is definitely more when it comes to seashells. Has me wondering if I've collected enough over the years to get out the hot glue gun myself. Do you have a seashell mirror? Image above via Sally Lee by the Sea

I snapped a picture of these shell mirrors last year while visiting in Wynn Alex in San Francisco. Rather like the grouping of the small mirrors with the large one.

Great selections, Michele. I'm also intriqued by seashell mirrors and did a post this winter about the work of seashell artist Peggy Green. She does amazing work.

Love the combination of the large and small shell mirrors. Shell mirrors have so much character.

Oh, I love this post! I have admired shell mirrors for years and recently helped my mom hang one in her new home in Florida! Finally, a perfect spot!

Love them so much! The images you have posted are beautiful. I made one with a white IKEA mirror, a glue gun and some really pretty shells and hung it in the lounge I set up for my teens. I worried that they would be rough-housing and it would get broken but the boys are both out of college now and the mirror is pristine. I found this a fun project and a wonderful reminder of our annual family trips to the beach.

I have a sea shell mirror in the guest room surrounded by fish plates. Love it.

I have been thinking about doing one...I wonder if the hot glue would hold it? Sometimes that stuff melts when it gets really hot and I would be worried about a shell falling off. Of course they are so expensive that it is still worth it to try one on your own.
