This is part of a collection of shells I've collected over the years. I love the amazing differences in texture and pattern and am constantly looking out for new ones to add. I spend most of my time on the beach looking at the ground and probably miss a whole lot of photo opportunities around me. But it's worth it when you find shells like these.
This is the cut class dish they live in. Actually it's an ash tray that someone gave us for a wedding present back in the days when we smoked! It's perfect for holding the shells as it has its own faceted sparkle to add to the mix.
