Shrine of Summers Shells
The 'Shrine of Summer Shells' is a monument showing the beautiful shells my sister left behind.
This piece is created using my sisters clothing, and her collected sea shells. Her clothing collection is in itself a beautiful body of art. Amassed during her life, each piece holds story's, memories, smells and visual clues in to her radiant spirit.
Her bedroom was always a jewel box, with precious bits of beauty exquisitely displayed.
On top of her dresser she created an incredible alter of jewels to wear, along with bejeweled picture frames of loved ones, shells, seeds and feathers. This alter would frame her face when she looked in to the mirror, reflecting back her beauty including all that she loved and admired .
