Necklace 1

PETRA GIEDE-BARNESDriftwood pieces from Devon, shells from Isles of Scilly, nylon fishing line

The idea for this necklace originated from a family holiday with my mother-in-law in 1992 on the Scilly Isles. We spent happy hours at the beach collecting these beautifully yellow coloured shells and I have wanted to turn them into jewellery since then!  The small dark pieces of driftwood needed spacing and so the shells finally got to fulfil the purpose I collected them for so many years ago. They all seem to float on the sea through the fishing line.
