So I told the girls to find special seashells just for Dee and when we got home we would make her something special out of them before she came home. Each shell was lovingly picked by her sisters and my husband then carefully drilled a hole in each one for us so we could make her a special seashell necklace.
We added a few jump rings and charms and laid out the design the way we liked it.
I used hemp cord and added a clasp to the end of the necklace. I learned how to do the clasp while we were away on vacation and went to a bead shop. It is very simple to do.
Then we created the necklace... and this was the end result:
I hope Dee remembers how much we love her each time she looks at it. It's a beautiful chunky necklace and I can't wait to make one for myself.
