    I bought a beautiful sea shell from a lovely lady on eBay... and it's in two parts... I'm hoping to somehow be able to 'hinge' the two together (or find someone who may be able to do so for me) Has anyone tried this and been successful? Suggestions?

    I'm also going to need to figure out the inner workings - but will cross that bridge when I get to it!

      One option would be to buy a hinge from a craft store and use a glue gun - an easier (and probably cleaner) option would be to drill a couple of holes in the bottom of each and use some sort of fastener or wire.

      I bought one large shell from Michaels and drilled two holes in the middle. I have threaded ribbon from the bottom to top (so the ends both come up through the holes) and will tie a nice bow that the rings wil be attached to...

        In case you just want to get another one....I got my ringbearer seashell from E-Bay. $14 plus S&H.

        The women had decorated the shell in my colors and attached some faux rings to it...it is so cute. Here is her email....Aprildawnesh@cs.com

        I will post pictures when I get home.
