    Martha, what an exquisite and stunning design. I love it. I live across the street from the ocean and I would say that you have captured what I see daily. It is gorgeous! I love the double stand and especially the silver spacers you used not to mention the shell clasp. You certainly have a terrific eye for detail. Just love it! Great job. Thanks so much for the inspiration.
