The Nerita seashell is incredibly beautiful. Its shape is broadly ovate or globular and low-spired, with a surface that is spirally ribbed with some axial sculpturing. The Nerita species can be found worldwide in tropical waters – their distinct pattern and neat profile are instantly recognizable characteristics. The shell has many uses for creative purposes, being the perfect size for embellishing photo frames, mirrors and jewellery boxes. Nerita shells are also great for outdoor creativity. They can be used as plant pot toppers or to decorate an old tired-looking container. Add just a few shells to a wall trough of sempervivums and start to instantly enjoy the benefits that seashells can bring to a display. Shells are a beautiful contemporary element to add to bathrooms also. Place a handful of Nerita shells next to the bath and enjoy an extra long soak in a bubble bath, gazing at your relaxing seashell feature. This variety of shell can also be used to create a sensational shell wreath. Using a foam wreath as a template, begin gluing a selection of your favourite seashells to the foam circle. Mount on the wall or hang to a door when finished, for a unique centerpiece.
