I made one for my Maid of Honor and one for myself. My FH created the base/handle because I couldn't find any premade ones at the craft store that would support the weight of the shells. I absolutely am in love with them and so is my MOH! After the wedding I will remove the handle and use the main part as a centerpiece or decoration somewhere in the house
Mine, along with charm photos of my grandparents who passed away this year and my cousin who passed back in 2007.
Both mine and my MOH from the top.
