"Neptune Nutcracker," a remarkable creation by artist Jehan Valiente Davis, takes the persona of Neptune, the great sea god, and merges it with the spirit of Christmas. This tiny treasure measures 12.5 inches by 7.9 inches and is meticulously made with love, earning prestigious accolades including the Best in Show for professional seashell artists at the Broward County Shell Show and a first-place ribbon at the 2024 Sanibel Shell Show.


 Fashioned from an array of tiny shells, coral, and abalone, each meticulously placed by hand, this nutcracker boasts a stunning texture composed of hundreds of rare shells. Valiente Davis, inspired by her fascination with nutcrackers, embarked on this creation during the 2023 Christmas holiday, immersing herself in Jazz Christmas music throughout the process. 


What began as a small project quickly evolved into a labor of love, with weeks spent decorating this intricate piece. Even the teeth of the nutcracker are fashioned from tiny shells, showcasing the artist's unwavering attention to detail and commitment to her craft. As Neptune, the mighty sea god, dons his festive attire adorned with intricate seashells, coral, and abalone, he becomes a symbol of the sea's bounty and the joyous celebration of the holiday season. 


With each meticulously placed shell and every detail crafted with care, "Neptune Nutcracker" captures the essence of both Neptune's majesty and the joyful spirit of Christmas, making it a truly one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
