My friend brought me two shells from her mother who collects them while walking on the beach near her home in Hawaii. It’s an honor that she relinquished a few in my direction.

I’ve been playing around, thinking about cones, and how to construct them. How to build them from a spiral:

Or from circles, like the necklace that is nearly finished now:

My circle obsession gone 3-dimensional.

    So, so beautiful, Estyn. Are the pearls threaded onto wire?

    I’ve tried to crochet the spiral shell shape without success. I’ll keep trying…..
