Preparing for seashell shows is an exhilarating journey, filled with creativity and anticipation. For me, it all started with a single piece that sparked my passion for entering the world of competitive artistry. It was my mom, the amazing seashell artist Bea Valiente, who encouraged me to showcase my work. She saw something special in my creation and urged me to enter it into a show. And so, with her unwavering support, I embarked on a new artistic adventure.


The piece that ignited this excitement was Neptune Nutcracker, a majestic creation inspired by my love for the holiday spirit and the enchanting Nutcracker ballet. Armed with a plain wooden nutcracker and a vision, I began transforming it into a beachy masterpiece. Coral became the hair, and with each tiny shell meticulously placed, the piece evolved into something truly extraordinary. Sculpting with shells became my passion project, consuming my days and nights throughout the month of December.


As I worked on Neptune Nutcracker, the music of the Nutcracker ballet served as my muse, igniting my imagination and fueling my creativity. Music has always been essential to my artistic process, breathing life into my creations and evoking emotions that shape my work. With each note, Neptune Nutcracker came to life, embodying the regal splendor of the sea.


Entering my first seashell show was both nerve-wracking and exhilarating. The Broward County Shell Show was a bustling hub of shell enthusiasts from around the globe, all united by their passion for these ocean treasures. Walking through the exhibition hall, I marveled at the intricate artwork and scientific displays, feeling a sense of camaraderie with my fellow exhibitors.


To my astonishment, Neptune Nutcracker was awarded "Best in Show for Professional Seashell Artist," a testament to the countless hours of dedication poured into its creation. Sharing this moment with my mom, who won first place for her exquisite seashell box, Ocean Celebrations, was truly special.

Buoyed by this success, we set our sights on the prestigious Sanibel Seashell Show, a renowned event that draws shell enthusiasts from far and wide to the shores of Sanibel Island, Florida. Amidst the bustling crowds and vibrant displays, we reveled in the camaraderie of fellow artists and the thrill of competition. And when we both walked away with first place ribbons, it was not just a triumph but a celebration of our shared passion for seashell artistry.


From humble beginnings to triumphant victories, the journey of preparing for seashell shows has been a whirlwind of creativity, camaraderie, and unforgettable memories. And as we continue to showcase our artistry on the world stage, we carry with us the spirit of Neptune Nutcracker and the boundless possibilities that await in the world of seashell art.
