Sea Shell Craft

A friend gave me a whole bunch of sea shells because she knew I'd love to have them. I was surprised and so happy to see that she has been collected these shells just for me!
I made a bracelet using those shells and it turned out pretty nice and you'll love the sound of the shells hitting each other.

    The sea shells I had were pretty thin so it didn't take much time to make holes in them. Place the sea shell on a wooden board, do not place the shell on hard surface. Gently rotate the awl on the marked spot and apply pressure carefully.

    Once the hole is made, turn the shell around. Again use the awl carefully to enlarge and give the hole a smooth round shape. While making holes on the shell you might break some shells but don't worry. I broke 5 shells while making holes on them.
