A few years ago, 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 both these shells and snowflakes. I collected a few and after washing them, I strung them together in the necklace shown below.
