    That would be a score. Beautiful.

    Ya know, I have found many seashells at the beach with holes perfectly positioned for wiring bails. Moon snails(and a few others) bore holes to get at the animal inside.
    Clever title and representative pick.

    I love this beautiful pick of perfect beachcombing. I have several containers of shells I have picked up at So. Padre Island. I need to go through them. I know I have one container of pieces of coral, some angel wing shells, pieces of sand dollars, and a couple of sea urchins that my brother and sister-in-law collected, cleaned of their spikes, and boiled to get their meat out. Not sure about hole placements in them.

    Yes, I love the shells the carnivorous whelks and the like have patiently bored their perfect holes into! I used to find these perfect tiny shells on one beach here in Rhode Island in ranges of black, gray, white and orange with different frequencies of white banding on them. They were quite thick for as tiny as they were, and I broke more than a couple of them being less than patient boring my own holes through them for jewelry. Particularly heartbreaking when it was a relatively large one in impeccable condition, all the tiny teethy ridges intact along the lip, and in a rare, subtle blue-gray. Oh! I’m still unsure if they are baby littlenecks or something else, but they are delightful in their bitty perfection and range of colors. They became the inspiration for my wedding invitations, actually.

    This would be fantastic beach booty. Especially since all the elements work so perfectly together! Nice pick.

    EPBCornell, if you can, please post a picture of the shell,I would love to see it. I know what you mean about breaking shells. Be careful of the shell dust though, it is bad for lungs(something I did not know until recently).
    Pam, on one trip to Florida(in winter after a storm) we found many urchins washed ashore already emptied. I washed them and dipped them in polyurathane(I’ld probably use epoxy now). They are hard enough to wrap a wire through.

    What a fun and interesting conversation.

    Definitely one of my favorite things to do on the beach. I love finding shells and stones and sometimes you find something really interesting… Like a baby turtle!
