Cowrie

I have a bowl of cowrie shells collected from beaches around the world. There are small and matt pale pink ones, larger polished ones with dappled browns, and others so sea-worn I could string them on a chain. I decided to take one shell and recreate those charming, undulating folds, the soft dome curving round... and make earrings and pendants.
