The Prettiest Shell Chandelier I Ever Saw

shell and coral chandelier in a florida coastal home

I have a friend named Phyllis who lives in a charming story-book style home on the water in Clearwater, Florida.  Everything about her home speaks to my heart — and it’s no accident.  Phyllis has one of the best design sensibilities of anyone I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing personally and each and every visit to her home is filled with one breath-taking moment after another.  Phyllis designs with love — and pink — lots and lots of pink.  It is Florida, after all!

Did I mention Phyllis has the absolute prettiest shell chandelier I’ve ever seen?  It chock full of coral and crystals and shells — oh my!  I thought you might want to see it too!

Love is in the details and this shelled chandelier has lots and lots of details.  The crystals mixed with the shells are absolutely gorgeous — and something I don’t think I’ve ever seen before.  The amount of coral tucked into every nook and cranny is luxurious.  The little double-row shelled lampshades — perfect.  Then add the shell flowers, pearl nautilus shells, pearl turbo shells, and the spiral cut trochus… I DIE!

If you love this as much as I do, and if you’d like to have your own custom chandelier, Heather of Heather Kendall Designsis happy to do custom work. Just let her know what you have in mind, she’ll work with you to create your vision, and she ships anywhere!  Heather’s contact info is on her website and she’d be happy to talk with you about your design ideas. 

So… what about you?  Tell me what you think!

Peace, Love, and Beautifully Inspiring Friends,

Lesli :)

If I owned a beach house I’d want a chandy just like this!

Me too! I took photos of it on my last day in Clearwater, just because I never wanted to forget it ;)

Love it!!! And the person who made it is a friend of mine: Heather Kendall – she makes great Shell Mirrors too!

I just found out about Heather today and posted a link to her on Facebook and Pinterest.  Are you sure she made this chandelier? It’s possible, because my friend lives in Clearwater.

Yes! Heather and I went to 2nd grade together – same person :)
