Look at the size of this wonderful Rainbow Seashells puzzle. There are so many different seashells and I have to admit that I have seen several of these. In fact, my daughter brought back a nice collection of them during a trip to Hawaii. These are one of life's little gems!

Rainbow Seashells Puzzle Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

This being almost a 30" x 40" puzzle, there ended up being 5 boards used for laying out the pieces.

This Galison jigsaw puzzle comes with a smaller poster so its handy if 2 Puzzlers are assembling it together. 

I managed to get the border together by matching the 'inside' pattern/colors with the image. The next plan of attach was to assemble the dark colors first and build on those areas. The smaller areas of seashells were tricky to distinguish even between colors.  Same goes for the yellow blends and pink blended areas. The dark greens blended with the dark bluish-purple hues too.

My normal speed for a 2000 piece jigsaw puzzle would be about 18-19 hours, however this was more challenging than I first thought it would be. I actually thought overall it would be easy to assemble. Well not so much easy at all and taking a good portion of time in the yellow and pink areas.

The following are some of the close up images displaying the quality cut of the pieces and the style of the ribbon-grid-like type cut. The image surface is glossy so also being a 2000 piece puzzle, the overall size takes up much space on the puzzle table which in turn was partially in the glare of the overhead light too.

That said, you can see how pretty the seashells are as they are placed strategically out in rows of rainbow colors.

Rainbow Seashells Puzzle Comments

The Galison jigsaw puzzles come with a poster, the pieces are bagged in thicker plastic than most puzzle bags and the box is solid. The image was quite attractive which is why I purchased it for my daughter as a Christmas present last year. She attempted to assemble it with me and found it to be rather challenging so I told her I would complete it. The Rainbow Seashells jigsaw puzzle is a terrific image for those who enjoy that extra challenge.
