Delray

Last fall we, my husband and I were able to get away
 to visit 
some friends and family in Florida.
When visiting our dear friends John and Debbie in Delray, 
we took a stroll along the pier.
Where we took home some natural treasures
from the beach.
Among all the shells I saw this one.
It called out to me to pick it up and take it home.
Well, actually Chip picked it up because he 
was on the beach and 
I was still on the pier looking down.
Tonight I decided it was time to make 
something with it.
I also decided  it was a good time to use the 
Green Girl puffer fish.
I guess I'm really longing for the 
warmer days of summer.

What a unique shell! and I love the beads that you used with it. The green girl pewter is a fantastic counterpoint to the sandy tones.

Thanks, Louise. I got those beads at a gem show. They are a faceted moonstone. I got one stand that is all the white shade and another with the variations. It reminded be of sand...on a larger scale of course. (Smile)
