grouphug.gif OMG, Thank you!!!!

The seashells are not hard to make at all! Actually my Husband thought it was one of the easiest tasks he helped me with! lol

It's just a little messy.

If you have a Michaels close by home you can get everything you need there.

All You need is:
-The chocolate melts. They come in all sorts of colors.
-Plastic tray molds of whatever shape you want. I bought the soap molds for my seashells. They were bigger than the ones in the baking aisle. They are same plastic material.
-They sell mini squeeze bottles where you can melt the chocolate in but, they were not much help to me, especially after so much reheating. I found it's easier to use ziploc bags.

How to create chocolate seashells (or whatever shape your mold is):

1. Put a handful of the chocolate melts in a zip-loc bag, boil some water, and dip the bag in it. Make sure you get NO WATER inside the bag or it'll ruin the chocolate. So you should only dip the bag in the boiling water for a few seconds at a time.

2. Once melted, make a whole in the bottom corner of the bag and pour into the molds.

3. Lightly banging the trays on the countertop after filling the molds helps spread the chocolate out evenly.

4. Place tray in refrigerator for about 30 mins. Then your chocolates are done!

Taking your chocolate seashells to another country can be a mission.

I recommend taking it as a carry on (obviously) in a tupperware. Add a bag of ice ( preferablyice in a zip loc bag and take a few extra empty ziploc bags with you too) inside the container. Once you get to the TSA Security Checkpoint, dump the bag of ice. Ice melts into liquid, so they will give you a hard time and Dry ice is not permitted as carry on. After you pass the TSA checkpoint, go to any vendor by your departure gate and ask them to kindly fill your ziploc bag with ice. My flight was for 2 hrs and between my arrival, baggage claim, and transfer to hotel, that 1 bag of ice barely made it. So, I would recommend before landing, dump the bag of ice again and ask a flight attendant to fill a baggie for you. The chocolate seashells will make it if you keep them cool. Then again, if you don't, they melt and look sloppy.

Good luck!muscle.gif

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
