Small Minded!

no-0169There are those who have said in humor that I am small minded and to tell you the truth I had no idea if I could create a shell flower small enough to fit the center of this pendant.

dsc00792-001    Each time I picked up a mussel shell I held my breath, but as you can see I can now breathe again.

dsc00794So with a few small, small and  smaller  Mussel and Cerithium Shells that look like Wentletraps and Sea Urchin Spines, I`m now the proud owner of a miniature size Antique Pocket Watch Pendant now available in my, “Strictly Shell Art Store” see: https://strictlyshellart.com/ Cases- Valentines Watches and more.

 

Spines & Lilacs

aThis is my latest adventure installing Sea Urchin Spins and Lilac Shells in an old Antique Pocket Watch Case. It was an interesting design I dreamed up but creating it at times in my studio the air turned “Blue”.2

But as you can see it was all worth the effort and if you would like to know how I  created it you can ask me at this year’s Sanibel Show, I will be there demonstrating 24/7.
