Short video clip of Zismer talking about the history of Sailor Valentines. When she began there were only two people nationwide who worked with shells. Now there are twenty and she is one of them. She uses dental tools to position the tiny pieces into place. A blender reduces crushed shells to a fine sand. Regular craft glue becomes as hard as cement when the shell design dries on the sand. Her boxed creations take from two weeks to one month to complete. She says she finds this activity is relaxing.
