INSPIRED BY TRADITION ~ CRAFTED
As far back as the early 1800’s homesick seamen
returned from their journeys with special tokens of remembrance
for their loved ones called Sailor's Valentines.
Today, these treasures are crafted by award winning artist
Sandy Moran in her Cape Cod studio. Following tradition,
Sandy hand places thousands of natural shells into her
unique design interpretations to create heirloom quality pieces of
art. Her valentines include
patterns and flowers of various unusual seashells, a unique centerpiece, and
are encased in quality handmade cases of cherry or tiger
maple. Sandy also delicately restores antique sailors valentines.
As a featured artist on a PBS fundraiser
show, Sandy has also been featured in Martha Stewart magazine, Coastal Living
magazine, La Vie Claire Magazine, Yankee Magazine, the
Wall Street Journal, as well as in various Florida publications
and national television.
All of Sandy Moran's sailors valentines are unique... all one of a kind, to
be treasured and passed down as a family heirloom.
