Junonia Shell Ornament
The Story BehindIn many cultures, the shell is a symbol representing birth, life, resurrection, love and good luck. In China, the shell is one of the Eight Good Prophetic Symbols signifying a prosperous journey. The Junonia Shell is found along the east coast and in the Gulf of Mexico.
Each glass ornament is mouth-blown into finely carved molds
A solution of hot liquid silver is added for exceptional color and vibrance
Ornaments are then hand-painted and hand-glittered for a fine finish
A very rare shell and ornament
Having visited Sanibel Island, Florida for over 30 years we, and others, always have an eye out for the very rare junonia shell on the beaches. When I saw this ornament it immediately struck a sentimental chord. It is a beautiful likeness of that special sea shell that is a real treasure of nature.
Junonia shell is absolutely beautiful! Very stunning.
