I found soft and faded late summer colors in my garden to complement the bleached shells. Among the things I cut were small hydrangea, viburnum berries, fern, sage, spray rose, hops, japanese anemone, dusty miller, oregano, and snowberry.
With each type of shell I let its shape guide the direction of the arrangement. The compactness of the hydrangea filled in the first layer in the snail shell, while the fern, berries and hops reach and curve like the spines on the shell.
