The shells are clean and ready to be sorted. This is always one of my favorite parts of the process. It’s very relaxing and almost meditative, although I find almost all of my jewelry work to be that way. Tommy always joins me in the office and is constantly attempting to “help”. He is also very odd and likes to knock small objects onto the floor, so he knows he’s not usually allowed on my desk. He eventually settles into a spot in the room and I’m happy to have the company while I work. Although I did not make any jewelry this morning, sorting the shells and organizing the desk will make my next day in the studio much more productive.
