Ancient sailors and navigators found their way by tracking the polestar, also known by its Latin name, polaris. Many expressions of sailor's folk art featured the pointed star. As a shell frame design, it was popular as a homecoming gift given by sailors calling on Barbados in the mid-1800s. To shine like a star, be born under a lucky star, thanking one's lucky star--the expressions are many. This new and very beautiful shell frame was created using exclusive natural whites and a few mother-of-pearl shells. Beautiful décor for any home... and can you think of a nicer and more symbolic wedding gift?
