Sandy Moran : Artist The very first Sailor's Valentine Sandy Moran viewed changed her life. Then in the antiques business, Sandy was offered an eighteenth-century example of these romantic works of sea-shell art for resale, and was quite taken by the simple beauty of an object that spoke so elegantly of a lonely sailor's love.

Sandy's interest grew as she learned more about the history of these objects. She also discovered that Sailor's Valentines were highly valued by art connoisseurs, collectors, and those seeking that perfect gift for a loved one.

A person with a fine eye for artistic quality, and a love for all things connected with the sea, Sandy was inspired to realize her own vision of a unique Sailor's Valentine.


Sandy Moran specializes in the restoration and repair

Her valentines include patterns and flowers of various unusual seashells. Many of the shells were discovered in old shell collections.

The natural colors and detailed work are encased in quality, hand-made cases of cherry and tiger maple. Some of the valentines utilize round ivory scrimshaw centers, others have one of a kind oil paintings in the center and still others have delicate seashell center designs.

All unique, all one of a kind, to be treasured and passed down as a family heirloom.

Inspired by Tradition - Crafted with Artistry!
