This is a hand-painted oyster shell trinket dish that features a vibrant abstract ocean wave design that adds elegance to any room. This is a full oyster shell with its own lid. There is a variety of colour versions, giving the customer plenty of choices.
The interior of the shell is coated with a special high-gloss coating, which not only protects the shell from scrapes and damage but is also food-safe so that it can be used for cold dry-food dishes such as sweets/candy, nuts, or condiments.
What makes these trinket dishes truly special is their design – a stunning oyster with a lid balanced on another oyster lid, with a pearl serving as the handle.
Just as each shell is unique, so is each painting as they are done live on the Oyster shell.
This is a unique piece of art that combines creativity, nature, and culture. The design captures the fluidity and movement of waves, creating a sense of tranquillity and harmony. These trinket dishes are not only a practical storage option, but they also serve as a lovely decorative item and come in a selection of beautiful colours.
Please note: Our oyster ring/trinket dishes are individually made to order. Each shell goes through many stages to produce a high-quality product. The final coating alone that protects the interior against damage takes at least two weeks to cure properly. So please allow 3-4 weeks from the order date to produce the finished product. Item will then be dispatched for delivery.
These are wild natural shells from the west coast of Ireland; each one is different in size, shape, and markings. The average shell size is 2″ x 3″, with some shorter and others taller; some wider and others narrower. The artwork is also never the same as each is individually decorated – making them all the more special.
We believe that every shell has a tale to tell. Our oysters are from the west coast of Ireland, picked from the waters of the world-famous “Galway Bay” part of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
Shells are genuinely one-of-a-kind gifts because no two are alike. They are tumbled by the wild Atlantic Ocean waves and shaped by the changing seasons, resulting in varying sizes and shapes. We work with what nature has given us. Variations such as; growth marks, ragged edges, chipped backs, and barnacles make each one special.
Every shell is individually picked, cleaned, prepared, hand-painted and decorated by our artists at our studio in Galway, Ireland.
Whether you receive this as a gift or purchase it for yourself as a decoration, a memento of a trip, or for friends or family to mark an occasion or relationship, you are becoming part of this Oyster’s tale.
