Charley Harper Shells, Kit by Nimble Needle, $153.

I’ve always been a shell lover, one of those fondnesses that I can’t explain.  Soft complex colors, complex shapes and smoothness to the touch.  I’ve put together this post for those who might want to stitch shells which then led to the beach which led to posting more items other than just shells.  While you can generally find shells on the jersey coast these pale in comparison to those found on beaches around the world.  So here’s to shell lovers!

Lastly, a lasting memory from my May adventure to Venice.

Artificial shell from Damien Hirst’s exhibit Treasures from the Wreak of the Unbelievable. Venice Bienalle 2017.  The textures achieved were as remarkable as is the whole very controversial show (in the art world). Now through December 3 2017 at the Palazzo Grassi and Punta Della Dogana.
