QUARTER/DIME/SHELLS



Sometimes creative art is not easy, this quarter would just not fit inside this Antique Pocket Watch, I guess I will have to try a dime.

                                       Well that will not fit either so Sea Shells it shall be!

                                                   Now that seems to be a better idea. 
 Yes, that is the right move. I managed to sneak in 75 Sea Urchin Spins and 15 Cerithium Shells, now what?  Maybe I can cut off the pointed ends of the Urchin Spines, it might make a nice decoration to outline the Cerithiums.

                               Now if I remember right I had some small Baby Whelk Shells.
 Not too shabby and the good part is I have not, “sworn”, so far, and as you can see I cut the tips of the Urchin Spines and filled the center. In the next picture you will see good luck at its finest !
 When I was sorting out the Baby Whelk Shells, I noticed some that were extremely small and the next picture shows those six shells made the day!

All done! Who say`s I can`t fit Sea Shells inside the diameter of a dime and even better, I now have four Pocket Watch Pendants I can choose from, to wear to Shell Crafters on Mondays !
