Beachcombing Projects, Part Two Framing CoralJanuary 26, 2015
Following on from last week's beachcombing post, a short guide on framing sea coral today for a bathroom or anywhere in your house.
We first saw inspiration for framing coral at Headland House, a boutique B&B in St Ives where we stayed on our engagement trip, post on that to follow. They had some beautiful black sea coral framed on the walls. We then forgot about it until a trip to Florida the year after and found an incredible shell shop that sold all different seashells and coral, responsibly sourced from the Gulf of Mexico. It cost about $15 but I loved the colour and how pretty and intricate it was. We carefully wrapped it up and layed it flat in a shoe box to try and get it home safely, taking it in our hand luggage rather than risk the baggage handlers chucking it around!
When we got home we googled framing the coral and found pictures like this. If you had a big seaside house a big display would look amazing as every piece is so unique.
