I’m totally in love with this unique idea – painted oyster shells for place settings or wedding favours.
I’m envisaging a cool beach-style wedding with seafood platters, Ibiza chillout tracks at sunset, swarms of beautiful people, and gallons of fizz…
These Norfolk oyster shells are recycled from beaches and restaurants.
The shells are cleaned, sterilised, sealed, painted by hand, copper paint edged, gloss varnished then drilled and hung with organic natural twine.
The artist Kate Elgood lives in Norfolk. A country girl at heart she describes her style as ‘slightly messy but free’.
You can order via Etsy, or contact Kate personally for your own bespoke designs.
A little bit of the coast for your special event.
