Eco Fashion | Timeless Seashells Collection

The peculiar human passion for exoskeletons has been around since early humans first started picking up pretty objects along seashores and beaches. Seashells fascinate a lot of us for their natural colors, delicately sculpted shapes and glorious decorations and structure.

One of the earliest known evidence of modern human culture are beads made from shells found in North Africa and Israel and have been dated by anthropologists as at least 100,000 years ago.

In medieval times, shells were not just rare, but literally regarded as precious gifts from God. Such natural wonders “declare the skillful hand from which they come” and reveal “the excellent artisan of the Universe,” wrote one 18th-century French connoisseur.

The precious wentletrap, a pale white spiral enclosed by slender vertical ribs, proved to another collector that only God could have created such a “work of art.”

At one 18th-century auction in Amsterdam, some shells sold for more than paintings by Jan Steen and Frans Hals, and only slightly less than Vermeer’s now-priceless Woman in Blue Reading a Letter.

The collection also included a Conus gloriamaris shell, for which the owner had paid about three times what his estate was getting for the Vermeer.

In this collection we have used seashells that are found in my country, the Philippines. The variety of shells found in its 7101 islands are almost infinite and varied in their forms, colors, and textures.

These gorgeous gifts from God in nature are amazing and will continue to inspire us to create beautiful, exotic, natural and timeless fashion accessories, home decors, gift items, and other forms of art discovered and more yet to be created.

The following fashion accessories are designed by Lyn Deutsch for Pinococo, an import|export company for a cause. These have been painstakingly handcrafted by indigent men and women who are undergoing our life skills training program to help them achieve economic upliftment.

Thanks for your time and God bless you most specially that you ra in the Phil, bec I’ve tried to inquire about this way back early yrs of 2000. Thanks again.

Hello Ritz,
Thank you for visiting and letting me know your seashells inheritance.

Definitely interested. I use seashells even broken ones in creating beautiful products in my work with indigent men and women, teaching them crafts from recycled and indigenous materials, that will generate income for them.

Let me know how to go about this.

with much appreciation,

Lyn

You’ve got nice pieces. It is an art and eco-friendly. You should have joined trade fairs.
