decorating with beach finds #1

I collect a lot of random shells and corals from the beach. 
& a lot of sea-finds have natural made holes in them already!

I made my mom a wind chime while she was here.
I made one for my mother-in-law for Christmas and I actually liked it better, but alas I forgot to take a picture.

I whipped this up in about 10 minutes as a surprise while my mom was in the shower, so it probably could have been better, but she loved it!

I'll have to make one for myself whenever I get my next stock pile of beach finds.

this was made with clear fishing line, random shells and corals, and large branch type thing (I'm not sure what it it, I found it on the beach, perhaps it was a sea fan or some other type of sea plant ?)

sea shells and  the coral pieces make such a beautiful sounds when clanked together!!
