India, being a peninsula, has some very beautiful beaches and a very long coastline. So the land abounds with sand, surf and, of course, sea shells! Hence, this is one country where you can find delicate craft made from the abundantly available sea shells.
Sea shells are very versatile, in that, they can be used creatively, with a bit of imagination, to actually give rise to an exquisite item of craft. The product you see featured here is one such item, made with sea shells.
The shells are stuck to each other in such a way so as to enable them to hold together several toothpicks. Ordinary toothpicks are then decorated at one end with smaller shells and placed on the 'toothpick holder'. This makes it a piece of art, while also being practically useful!�
