shell foot 3x5

Abalone shells, actual giant red abalone shells from the beautiful Pacific coast of California. These have been in the family for a long time, as they washed up on shore many decades ago. I figured when revered, like when they cling to rocky shores, the shells would be very strong. Threading the gauze ribbon through the holes was a challenge; hard to determine what twisting and wrapping would work best.

Feet are painted turquoise as the light was terrible and my feet looked like they belonged on a cadaver. A fun feat for feet.
