Last year, while walking along a beach, I noticed some bright flecks of color in the sand. I bent over to take a closer look and discovered that the beach was strewn with tiny shells freshly washed up from the sea. Since they were so new, the colors hadn’t faded or chipped away yet. They reminded me of snowflakes – each one unique and beautiful, with its own intricate pattern. It made sense, since the same Artist made these shells and snowflakes. I collected a few, washed them, and strung them together to make this necklace.
