Shelling / Beach-combing – A Year Round Hobby

Customize It All

Shelling is a favorite pastime of mine, and the best part is, it can be done year-round.

Storms churn the sea, bringing up many long-hidden ocean treasures up on shore. Yes, the windy Winter months are harsher for shellers, but with several layers to keep warm (a rain poncho helps), you can gather those hard-to-find shells you’ve been waiting for.

Where I live, the Gulf Stream is ever-faithful to bring up surprises from all over. My latest goals are finding dark purple quahog and conch shells. I’m going to make some wampum jewelry with my trusty Dremel tool, and I need some conch shell to experiment making other jewelry beads, or whatever I come up with. Will post pictures when I can get further South…

Emerald Isle Beach, NC at Sunset Design

I took this shot several years ago when the sun went down…I didn’t add any effects to the photo itself, but the sun casted it’s own pink halo!

Emerald Isle Shell Closeup Card by CousinBelles

I can honestly tell you…I have no idea what this is. 

Is it a rock? Shell? Bone?

Whatever it is, I was intrigued enough to take this photo at Emerald Isle, NC.
