this shadow box was one of my beach projects. the sparkle barnacles and the smallest mussel shell took some hits in transit, but i brought home an entire suitcase of shells and rocks (more on rocks and shells later) so i will be able to fix it right up. and yes, there was more than a little eye rolling at the 49.7 pound suitcase full of rocks and shells, but see how i need them already? the swarovski beads are from my jewelry making days. i opened the shadow box to get sparkle pictures but it just doesn't translate. it sparkles in person.
