Decorative Eggs Dorset Oyster Shell Dish.

What does an egg represent in art?

The egg has always held particular symbolic significance, partly because it is a visual shorthand for new life and un-hatched potential. The egg brings hope and purity. It is a symbol of fertility and the circle of life. In some Asian cultures the egg is seen as a symbol of luck and wealth.

These dishes can be used as Jewellery Dishes, Trinket Dishes, Cufflink and Tie Pin Dishes, Tea light holders. Bathroom Decor or Salt and Pepper Dishes.

Two sizes of shell available, please select your preference before checking out.

10-11cm wide STANDARD

11-12cm wide LARGE

Bringing nature indoors :

Drawing inspiration from the stunning Dorset Coastlines, each dish is individually hand crafted and is a one of a kind creation.


These shells come straight from the beautiful shores of Dorset. Once they are back in my studio each one is then thoroughly cleaned and scrubbed and left to air dry.

Once the decoupage is dry they are left to air dry for another day. They are the sealed and painted with a gold leaf.

Each shell trinket dish will have subtle variations which are caused by the natural variations in the shape and size of the sea shells used, as well as a result of the hand crafting painting method and the Decoupage.

The shells are presented in a natural craft gift box nestled in white shredded presentation paper and tissue paper to protect the shell. It is accompanied with thank you note (printed onto premium white 300gsm water colour paper) and a thank you sticker.

A wonderful self indulgent treat for you or a thoughtful gift to show your love for that special someone ❤️

Please note : The shell is sealed with a hard wearing crystal resin but I do not recommend that you immerse it in water. To clean wipe gently with a dry cloth.
