Cool! I've never heard of jingle shells. They almost seem like sequin paillettes--maybe you could sew them onto a bag or a felt backed necklace :)

I remember those poured resin table tops. They always seemed to be at a deli counter or bar with a bunch of coins or foreign currency embedded in them. Shells would make a much more beautiful display. Unless they're in a toilet seat... then, no, LOL.

I have a small resin souvenir thing that my in-laws bought in Florida with little shells and seaweed and stuff. And my mother resurfaced a deteriorating kitchen counter with resin.

The linked article in the blog suggests they're an Atlantic coast shell, which may be why you never saw them in CA. They're really pretty, but the prettiest part is the inside, and that wouldn't normally be the part visible in jewelry or anything. So it's a conundrum.

Toilet seat??? Lady, you have a very warped imagination! ;-)

The beaches in my hometown are littered with jingle shells. I've seen people string them together to make wind chimes that are very nice in a beach-house kind of way.

IKR? It's truly amazing to see how far technology has come.
Yeah, my first video games were Pong, Space Invaders, and Catepillar (fun games all) - it's a strange world.

I remember early in the seventies when my dad hooked up our homemade Heathkit TV with the original Pong, LOL.
We didn't have Pong at home, but the pinball arcade was just down the block, and they had it.

At ours it was Pong, Pac-man and Dragon's Quest. :)
