Nothing says summer more than making a seashell bracelet. Sand between toes, warmth that sends a chill up your spine. The soothing whooshing of an endless ocean tide. A little known fact: there are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on Earth. Scattered amongst these seemingly infinite grains of sand are seashells, which exist in a dazzling array of sizes, shapes and colors. Once collected, they may be assembled into a seashell bracelet, which will commemorate the dreams of summer forever.
During a stroll on the shore, choose appropriately sized seashells that will fit snugly on the wrist to be donning a bracelet of seashells. Collect them in a bucket or pouch.
Supplies to be used are: seashells, ocean beads, a small drill, string or yarn, and scissors
Then, follow these steps. Rinse the shells under running water to wash away sand and residue. Using a small drill, drill a hole in the desired point of each seashell. An optional choice here is to spray each shell with clear gloss for extra glimmer. Include small beads, such as festive conch seashell beads (which may be purchased online), and line up all shells and beads to be strewn in a row. Then, cut a piece of yarn or string that is slightly longer than the assembly of shells and beads. Important: make sure this piece of yarn is an appropriate size for the lucky bracelet recipient wrist. Using a needle at one end of the yarn or string, thread the shells and beads into a bracelet. Then, tie a knot to tie the knot on one homemade seashell bracelet. Trim off any extra yarn or string from the knot.
A seashell bracelet may be worn at a summer’s bonfire as a celebratory splash of the glorious mid-year season, or during winter’s gray as both a commemorative accessory of another summer swiftly swept away, and a metaphorical timepiece counting the seconds until another summer’s steadfast arrival. Either way, a seashell bracelet is sure to delight.
