Hello. I made these from bay scallop shells that I found on the beach.
I made a wee mermaid out of clay, glazed and fired it.
Here are a bunch of them. Little Nantucket souvenirs!
I added buttons to some and shells to others.Buttons are made of shells, you know.:)
Et Voila! All available in the shop on 4 Fair Street right here in Nantucket.
And here is a lovely link!
