When I picked up this piece of shell in St. Kitts, battered smooth by the power of the ocean, I knew it had to be made into a necklace, it's just the perfect shape for a pendant.  

I wire wrapped the top with white coated wire, then chose beads that reflected its colouring.  I chose a pallet that made me think of wood or bones bleached in the sun on a hot dry beach.  I used frosted white glass beads found in New York and pale wooden beads from Miami, Florida.  I strung the whole thing on pale hemp to give it that washed ashore feel.

I like the neutral colours and simplicity of this piece.
