“Pearls and Pastels” is a meticulously hand crafted Sailor’s valentine by award winning artist Gerda Reid. This valentine is made from a variety of natural seashells. No dyes or paints were used in the making of this valentine. The pastel colors are all straight from nature and the sea side. This elegant artwork features delicate central flower motif surrounded by layers of shiny coral colored salt water pearls. The border alludes to delicate lace that’s made from miniature silver dollar shells.
