Sunburst mirror made with seashells



I have always loved sunburst mirrors!  So I was very exicted to make this one out of my favorite objects, SHELLS.  I don't have step-by-step pictures of this project, because I was just making it to put in my
Etsy shop.  It came out so pretty, I wanted to share it with you.

 First, I adhered abalone shell shards to the perimeter a wooden circle form.  Then placed all the tiny little pearlized umbonium shells all around the form, making sure to also put the shells on the inside edge.  Lastly, I attached a round mirror I purchased at my local craft store with mirror glue.




 What do you think?  Do you like this rendition of a sunburst mirror?

Thank you for stopping by!

I totally love it! Obviously it couldn't be used with any decor, but it looks great! I'd use it.
