Nearly everyone who has strolled along a beach has picked up a few pretty shells and then, not knowing what to do with them, has thrown them away. Others, however, have become collectors and this book tells them briefly how to recognize the main groups of shells, and at more length, how to display their finds - on shelves, in drawers, under glass table tops, in jars, picture frames and so on. From this point the author goes on to offer many ideas on what can be made with shells - jewelry, flowers, mantel and table decorations, frames and wreaths, figures and ornaments. She has included some womderful examples from the 18th and 19th centuries when shell decoration was extraordinarily intricate and elaborate. Detailed instructions are given for present-day projects with diagrams and photographs. The book includes a list of suppliers and a bibliography for the serious student and collector. Elizabeth Logan is a commercial artist by training and profession and has become a specialist in the clever use of scraps and natural materials. She is also the author of 'Scrap Craft'.
