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.
