I'm still working out how to best take pictures of small things, so bear with me on the lack of good pics >.< Anyways, I found these two shells while rummaging around my room, and decided to make earrings out of them. Since I didn't feel like figuring out how to drill or glue them, I just wire-wrapped them with a few beads Tongue The earring hooks are cheap crafty ones, since I'm out of the good kind in silver.

'ope you'll post your results if you can photograph 'em Cheesy The wire's a little hard to start on the conch-like shell, I had to pinch a small bit of it over the opening in the shell, then start winding.
