Once upon a vacation I found a smooth bit of seashell with a perfect hole through the top. "Perfect for a necklace!" I thought to myself. And one lunch hour after the vacation I even attempted to buy the appropriate supplies for making such a necklace. But I wasn't exactly happy with the string and then I used the metal loop to repair a different piece of jewelry and the little seashell sadly sat in a plastic bag, waiting.
Fast forward four years. One of my co-workers does lovely beadwork. And one day I think to ask her if she might make a necklace for me. She says yes. A few weeks later, this lovely piece of art is born. I love it so much that I wear it the very next day!
