I found the shells at The Beadin' Path.
Then I needed something to fill in around the shells and I started thinking how so many coral reef animals look like flowers anyway - tube worms, anemones, etc. So, I used some flowers, too.
I added in some crystals and some triangular seed beads to act as fillers.
Then I added this cute little pewter fish charm from Michael's.
The clasp and chain also came from Michael's. Because I like to get my cheap on, yo!
And voila! My little undersea garden was born. What do you think? Does is look like a slice of life on a coral reef? Or does it just look like I've lost my mind (which, after the trashtastic weekend, is entirely possible)?
