Back in March of this year, I was working in front of the television, again, and on the Martha Stewart show, they were doing a segment on the Sanibel Shell Fair and Show. Interesting, but not captivating, until they started talking about miniatures. Then, lo and behold, I heard the name Peter Gabel. Our Peter Gabel? Yes, the IGMA Artisan member Peter Gabel who is making a name for himself with his
amazingly detailed miniature flowers, had won the Sanibel Shell Fair’s top prize in the miniatures category-and no surprise, it was a beautifully rendered arrangement of flowers, all made of shells, miniature shells. I love seeing IGMA members pop up in unexpected
places. So, I wrote to Peter and here is a photo of his prize winning entry-can you believe that is all done with shells?
