What a sweet shell. I was so worried about drilling a hole in it, but it worked out great. The great orange and black beads in the bottom one are beans. I found most of these beads from the old broken jewelry.

I volunteer at a non-profit thrift store in Vero Beach Florida. A key project is Viva Kids, a child sponsorship program in the Dominican Republic for poverty stricken children. We support two Children Centers where these children are offered food, education, and medical attention in a loving environment who would otherwise receive none. http://www.facebook.com/pages/To-Every-Nation-Thrift-Store-for-Missions/261564223893655
