Summer is fast approaching, and there's nothing I love more than to celebrate the season than with a happy trip to the seaside. But as a resident of southern California, I am privileged in my proximity to the beach. Those who are looking for a taste of the ocean, but live a little far from the shore for regualr visits can still bring the ocean to them with just a few, all natural, tropical seashells, sea stars, and sea glass.

Whether you use them for jewelry making, vase filling, candle making, scrapbooking, or curio collecting, these beautiful vibrant shells will not disappoint.

 

Seastars / Starfish

Of course, there is no sea creature with a more distinct and recognizable shape than the sea star. While commonly called "knobby" starfish, the scientic community call them protoreaster nodosus or the "horned sea star". The older the sea star, the larger they become, and the more pointed their "horns". Some of Vase Market's sea stars are dyed in different colors to give a chromatic variety for your decorative pleasure.

Sea Glass

Sea glass and beach glass that naturally form in the ocean or freshwater are physically and chemically weathered glass, gradually worn smooth by the rough tides and sand over many years. Vase Market has five different colors of frosted sea glass, and they are favorites for jewerly makers, mosaic artists, and event planners who use them as vase fillers. These weather glass pieces make beautiful additions to terrarium arrangements as well.

If you find that picking and arranging your own combination of shells makes your head spin, take a look at our pre-mixed assorted packages! They are arranged based on general traits: size and color, and might come with a special white finger sea star (See VFSS2001/00 and VFSS2002/00). These shells are packaged in lovely clear plastic gift bags, which is why they're the best gift for your oceanic / marine life fanatic friends and family.

 

How to Make Creative Arrangements with Sea Shells

In the example below, we can see that filling our glass bowl vases with sandseashells, and starfish, makes a creative, thalassic aesthetic that is perfect for outdoor beach and ocean themed weddings or birthday events. Adding just a single, small votive candle in the center really completes and picture, and is sure to sustain your creative design with a warm and enchanting light all throughout the night.

For a beach themed event, try adding sand, seashells, and other nautical elements to your bubble bowls

You can also see that sea urchins make cute, colorful additions to terrarium gardens. Try adding them to our small glass bubble bowls or our fish-shaped terrarium bowls

Sea Urchins and other shells can be a fun accent to your terrariums
