A snail that loves Frida . Snail 19/33

A snail that loves Frida

It's been almost a year since I made a snail!
 I had the idea of making a Frida inspired snail in my mind for almost two years,
 but didn't know how exactly I'm going to make it.  But with the help of this gorgeous 
Pinterest board I got inspired to make this snail:

I've made it with: 
polymer clay + Natural shell + Swarovski crystals + chain + beads
 + Ribbon + lace + Acrylic colors + Blush + Polymer clay glaze

The mint necklace and red scarf are made of polymer clay.

Snail 18/33

I want to make a small shadow box for it. But have no idea how to do it! 
So sad that Ikea stopped making those tiny shadow boxes.
