This shell sat on my desk for about three weeks while I worked out how to wire wrap it without taking away from its natural beauty.  I loved the spiral of this shell so I tried to emphasise it with wire curling around it, but it wouldnt stay put!  Finally I worked out that wrapping vertically would not distract from the natural shape and would mean I could attach the shell to a necklace.

I used dark coloured wooden beads and chocolate coloured hemp cord to bring out the dark colouring of the shell.  I used copper coloured wire to wrap the shell to add a little colour to the piece and introduced blue glass beads from England to compliment it.

This piece seems very sophisticated to me, with its mix of colours and textures.  The dark colours seem to make the blue beads and copper wire sparkle.
