Back when I was a teenager, I used to spend my summer holidays with my parents, often at the seaside or near it. It was a Baltic sea, and it doesn’t provide interesting shells for jewellery, but on the annual St. Dominic’s fair in Gdansk, you could buy all kinds of exotic shells and ambers. I used to spend half of my allowance on them and I’d string them on a piece of leather cord, give to friends or wear them myself. The big ones were used to decorate my room.
I still have a large box of them, so I thought maybe they could be of a serious use for my wire wrapping. I’ve made only one so far, a year ago or so. The copper wire has tarnished a little bit since then giving it more vintage look.
