Hi, my name is Bea Valiente and for those of you that know me and have already ordered from me, you know that my seashell designs started back in 2004. My first seashell creation was a seashell mirror. I designed this small seashell mirror for a family member and gave it to her as a gift for her beach home. She was delighted and loved it. I designed this shell mirror with seashells that I had collected through the years of shelling around the beaches here in the state of Florida.
Shelling and being at the beach is a big part of my life. I have always had a strong connection to the beach and ocean and all the beautiful gifts it creates, especially shells. As an artist my eyes are drawn to the many interesting shapes and colors of seashells and I could not resist turning natures gifts into my own works of art. Thus I found a new medium and love for seashell art and design and thats how Bea's Tropical Designs was born.
A few years went by and I realize that the need to custom design my creations were important to my client's needs. I made this an important aspect of my work and now my clients are able to realize their dreams by owning one of my custom creations to their specific measurements.
My creations have been ordered all around the world, and not mention featured in Hollywood, where they were they played a part on HBO's True Blood, as well as NBC's Today Show.
I'm always creating new designs when time permits away from my many orders and would love to create a seashell design unique to every individual. If you don't see exactly what you wish for in a seashell design on this site, let me know and we can design your dream seashell creation together. Thank you always!
