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!

smaller than imagined
I couldn't picture what one pound of shells would look like but this was less than I though. Maybe two soda cans full? And they are small shells.

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.
