THE GILDED SHELL hospitality beads and the decision to place an oyster at the end of each one is more than a reflection of of their beachy style. 

The Gilded Shell owners specifically chose oysters because they can represent so many positive things depending on the person and what they want to see. They are to remind us that…

Beauty can come from the unexpected!

We must be present!

You are Strong!

Childhood friends, Jill G. & Amanda M., have been creating businesses together since before they could drive. Rooted in a desire to grow their shared hobbies and interests beyond just the two of them and the walls of their own homes, The Gilded Shell was born.

Advocates for sun, sand, and the sea as a means to restore the soul – they decided to bring the idea of that coastal cure and belief that the world is your oyster to every piece they create – with just a touch of gold… because they simply couldn’t resist. 

At The Gilded Shell, they’re committed to helping protect the home of our beautiful oysters. Each year these two dynamic women donate a portion of their proceeds to charities and local organizations who work to  protect our oceans and waterways. Each shell is hand selected, each bead is hand painted, and each piece is hand crafted off of the Florida and Virginia Coast.  

They are keeping production local for a wonderful cause!   These beads make a wonderful hostess gift or ‘just because’ gift’ to your self!  Use as a napkin holder or decorate a door knob!  Drape over the neck of a wine bottle for a special presentation!
