This Snail's Pace Shell Scrapbook Embellishment is a reminder of tropical torpor, and the slowness of island life.

It was crafted in Bali from beautiful highly polished mother of pearl shell, also known as nacre. This listing is for one piece only.

This piece can be used for jewelry but is also ideal for scrapbooks, cards, and off the page projects if you're into the paper arts. You might even use it for a barrette.

BACK STORY
Of the 17,000 islands that make up the vast Indonesian archipelago, one more than any other has become a world favourite destination. It is, of course, Bali. My second home.

We all have places in the heart and Bali has been mine for more than two decades. I even lived in a little house in the ricefields north of Ubud, Bali's art and cultural capital, for much of 2006.

I hauled lots of scrapbook supplies up there from Australia and created to my heart's content. The Balinese don't know too much about scrapbooking but I always get a warm and wonderful response when I show them my well-travelled albums. My favourite is: "You make Bali look like paradise."

The world comes to Bali and as I've found over the years, there are plenty of kindred creative spirits among those visitors. So it seems like a good idea to share my treasures, not just with scrapbookers but with people making their own greeting cards, wedding invitations, jewellery, garments and accessories.

Enchanting, beguiling Bali. The eyes of the world have turned to my lovely island getaway since Hollywood cast its spotlight on her through Eat Pray Love, the movie based on Elizabeth Gilbert's best-selling book of the same name.

The secret is out. The road to Bali is experiencing a peak-hour rush from all those seekers of sun, surf, self-discovery, or serenity of soul. If you are one of the lucky ones who make the journey, and you want to scrapbook your unforgettable memories afterward, be sure to come back and see me here at Indounik.

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of Bali
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of Bali
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold

*Apologies to Sting who of course sang of "fields of barley". I know he'd understand.
