When Daeng sees shells on the beach, she always thinks about how to make beautiful wearable art from them. One day while at a weekend market in Bangkok, she saw beautiful shells and got the idea to make a brooch by beading around a shell. After requests from friends, she turned the brooch concept into a pendant, here strung from a necklace of wire-wrapped stones.
