The scallop shell: from form once-inhabited to sea-tumbled object, its shore-ward voyage is presided over by forces unknown . . . Perhaps it is this, the ‘passage-between-realms’ that gives shape to its being, that predestines the symbolic associations it carries; the scallop, it is said, will appear as way-marker to pilgrims along their journey, the shell’s grooves signaling various paths, all of which converge at the same sacred destination.


Chocolatemaking is our own form of spiritual pilgrimage, a calling both precious and deeply, deeply cultivated, each step of its process moving us forward in our perpetual quest for beauty. The making of our seashells is a reflection of this: crafted from dark or deep-milk chocolate, they are moulded in the shallow beds of scallops gathered sea-side, each shell’s distinctive ridges and furrows imprinting a delicate pattern upon the chocolate.


Packaged in soft-cotton paper, tied with silk thread, and finished with vintage Hawaiian shell, our chocolate seashells make a beautiful gift.
