"Wish Upon A Star" Sailors Valentine



                           


      “Wish Upon A Star", is a 10" Sailor Valentine in a dark Mahogany case in a Jordan Case. The colorful star center is hand blown glass created by David Mcdermott and as noted in the picture I placed a taxidermy beetle playfully examining each of the seashell flowers in my arrangement. Researching Victorian shell art of the 1800`s beetles and wings of beetles were represented in this type of art and my theme for this creation is reminiscent of that era as well as the nursery rhyme; "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star".
