Happy Beachy Birthday, Jody!

Posted by E.G.D. on November 13, 2014

As some of you might know, today is Jody’s birthday!  If you do not know who Jody is, you probably haven’t been reading our site for very long, because most of the articles we post are written by her.  Even in articles not written by her, we usually use her photographs. Anyhow, in honor of her birthday, I originally attempted to make a broach out of shells from Gulf of Mexico beaches we have visited together, but the resultant product was 1) way too big and 2) way too delicate to turn into a functional piece of jewelry.  So, I turned it into an art piece, instead!  Here it is: Mama Shell Doesn’t she look like she has a face?  And like she’s ready for the big birthday party dance/ball/cocktail party?  In maybe the 1920s?  Anyhow, all of these shells were collected on Gulf of Mexico beaches in Texas and Louisiana.  I hope you all enjoy my art project, especially Jody (who also happens to be my Mommy).  Happy Birthday! -E.G.D.
