Ocean Bracelet

Instead of getting out on Black Friday, I decided to do something creative and relaxing at home. Besides, I spent all my money in Hawaii! I spent the morning with my soldering iron making a bracelet from small shells, stones and coral that I picked up on the beach of Waikiki. I had collected a handful thinking I'd make something special and this idea woke me up early this morning (as most of my ideas do). Some shells have little holes and for the other pieces that didn't I just wrapped with a strip of foil, soldered around and attached a ring. I couldn't have purchased a more special souvenir.
