The splendid seashell in this bookmark is a hermit crab shell that has stunning burgundy and green colors. There are no blemishes or chips in the seashell; perfect specimen.
I wove this design with four different weave patterns, which add texture and contrast. I added tiny natural copper beads surrounding the shell.
I oxidized the copper to an exquisite patina, adding depth and contrast of color in the metal. I then tumbled the bookmark with steel shot; this strengthens the piece and adds a high gloss to the copper.
