Hi all
I've promised my daughter over the summer holidays I will help her make a silver charm from some seashells we have (mainly dogwhelks) - We have made a few flat items, but nothing 'complete' like this. How do I go about making this 'whole' if that makes sense, and hollow, ie pretty much exactly like the enclosed picture. I can't find anything on Youtube. Any advice much appreciated! Thanks.
