Sewing the shells on "Shoreline"

My wearable art piece "Shoreline" is now complete, at least the dress and over vest are finished. I still have to create my headpiece, my shell fascinator, which will incorporate a head band and shells and the use of a glue gun.

The first shells sewn on the "Shoreline" over vest.

Detail of the shell showing how it was attached. I used glazed hand quilting thread.
