"Summer & Shells".....

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

So "charming" when combined with "antique silver" & "burnished brass sconces"!.....

O.K.....Summer is coming once again & so is my desire to make a "shell frame"!.....I have wanted to take this project on for sometime,...in fact for the last couple of years, but for some reason it always gets postponed?....So is this the year?, is it finally time for me to sit & intricately place shell after shell, in lovely patterns, hoping for a shell-encrusted masterpiece?....I so hope so!.....I happen to love that kind of "pastime", arranging, fiddling, gluing......& the result is so amazingly pretty!....."Nature" taken to a whole new level!......So simple & yet so elaborate!....Here's to "Summer & Shells"! Wish me luck!.........

So "beautifully intricate"!.....

I love the way all the shells have their own shape. Cant wait to see the finish piece.

Good luck!

I love shells! I remember making things with them when I was young in my grandmother's art studio where she had a plethera to choose from.

Hi Heidi
I have always wanted to make a shell frame too and have collected shells every time we've been to Florida the last few years. Some day I hope to actually make one!
Hugs, Rhondi
