National Recognition ~ Coffee Table Book Cover Features "Sunrise Shells by MonicaByTheShore" of Hawaii!

This beautiful selection of Hawaiian Sunrise Shells will be used for a photo shoot for a coffee table book cover!  The shoot will take place on the East Coast on the New Jersey shore and the professional photographer will display the Sunrise Shells on a black background for the book cover photo.  The publication is a high end bi-annual book that can be found in many doctors offices waiting rooms, at real estate open houses, art galleries as well as many private homes.  I'll post a photo of the actual book when it is published towards the end of summer, so be on the lookout for these pretty seashells, you'll know where they came from when you spot them, "Sunrise Shells by MonicaByTheShore" of the North Shore, Haleiwa, Hawaii!  
I can't wait to see it!

Welcome Springtime Sunrise Shells!!!

What an Exciting Winter We've Had on the North Shore of Oahu!

This past winter has been one for the record books in Hawaii!  All of the islands saw an entire winter of record setting big wave surf, with the 50 foot swell in January being the major headliner of season! The Triple Crown of Surfing contests in Haleiwa, Sunset Beach, Pipeline and at Waimea Bay were amazing, with huge, beautiful waves providing the best surfers in the world an opportunity to put on a show of  their amazing talent against the backdrop of some of the most breathtaking Pacific Ocean big wave scenery ever seen. Nature, she really is beautiful....  and those big waves also brought in a fresh treasure of incredible Hawaiian Sunrise Shells!  Thank you winter, thank your ocean, thank you beloved little scallop for the natural beauty of your Sunrise Shell, I strive to honor you with my seashell jewelry creations!
~ Aloha Winter, and Welcome Spring! ~
