Another Shell Bowl

I went out to a local flea market last Saturday and found another large shell to decorate and so Saturday afternoon I played with the shell and pearls and rhinestones.
I have really enjoyed decorating these shells.This one is a surprise gift for a friend.
                                                                                 

This one I added lots pearls and a little silver metal  fish inside since the shell came from the ocean anyway just like the pearls and fish, right? I had all these do dads in jars and drawers in the studio. I had a rhinestone bracelet I broke apart and used and then the pearls came from a broken costume vintage pearl necklace. Not sure when I got the little metal fish it was just in one of my treasure jars

                                                 
Oh and I used E6000 glue. It's will hold forever and dries very clear so I don't have to be real neat
 I think I have an idea to jazz these shells up a little in my spare time. I had a good relaxing weekend and I got my garage cleaned out and even hosed out and mopped, it sure looks better. I even filled the trunk of my car with clothes, shoes and nick nacks and took it down to the Wardrobe a donation center Tuesday.
 This is a large bowl  full of shells from north west coast and a few from Flordia of my grandmother's that I have sitting in my kitchen floor
 These are just so fun and glamorous  to make did you see my post a couple back of the first one I decorated? I should name them something  beside shell bowls ?  maybe glitzy art shells ?

  16. Janice,
    These are masterpieces, I love them and I may have mentioned that I have a coin purse made from abalone shells that was my Grandmother's. I treasure it to this day.

  21. Dear Janice:
    That sea shell looks so lovely and would be a delight in a bathroom too!

  22. Dear Janice: (again)
    Thank you for all your info on the antique guy in Mexico. I found several treasures there and wished I had seen a "green" house to photograph but really I guess I stayed on the main road. He sure needs to "wash" things down as his lovelies are caked in dust. I wanted some of his wood shutters for our house but my hubby wants plastic ones.

  23. Janice- these are just lovely!
    In all my searching, I have never happened upon a shell like that.
    And your trim- wow!
    Thank you for being at Thoughts of Home.
    Pinning!
