Natural Clamrose Seashells
great for crafts
These were pretty shells that worked well for our crafts projects -- we used them for several throughout the week at our vacation BIble school. They arrived nicely packed among the other items and only a couple were broken.
A good value, too.

These were such a great buy! None of mine were broken and all were in very good condition. I used them in vases with a candle for my mothers wedding. Make sure you pay attention to the size of the bag (1lb.) Im not sure why I thought it would be a lot more, but they were great! I looked at quite a few places for seashells and nothing beat the price at oriental trading. GREAT BUY!

Not as pretty as the picture, but good value overall
I purchased a 1 lb bag of this and the price was very reasonable. However, the picture shows the shells as having a very nice yellow burst of color radiating from the base, but the ones I received are pretty much all white. I wish they had the same coloring as the picture. I'm not sure if any arrived broken since I haven't opened the whole bag yet.

Kind of disappointed
OK but pretty small. They tend to nest into each other -- don't display very well. And are all a bland, pale white/cream/gray color.

Not as advertised
I ordered these for centerpieces and was expecting a selection of shells in the size range as shown in the description and the picture shown - 1/2" to 1 1/4". What arrived was a bag of almost identical shells all under 1" many are UNDER 1/2". These will be too small for my purposes, and now I will have to find something more suitable. If you need lots of very very small shells, this is for you, If you want a variety of smallish shells as described, DO NOT ORDER THIS.

quality ok, but not what I wanted
Shells were MUCH smaller than what I wanted. I will be able to use them for a different project, but had to make a special 240 mile trip to the nearest craft store to get what I needed. :-(

Pretty small bag! Need to buy like 20 more! :)

Reasonably priced for above average quality
Not for those who want pure white shells. Some are broken; however, there are plenty in the bag and the price is definitely right.

Great variety of size and color
I am making small wreaths as christmas ornaments and these are working out great.

This was an excellent buy for our Beach Bash craft. They were easy to handle and none were broken. Even our 4 years old were able to handle without problems.
