There are many odd trinkets and treasures you can find at the beach, from washed-up letter bottles to pretty shells and pebbles. If you look for them hard enough, you might be able to find something quite interesting.
Clotilde Olyff had been collecting stones from the beach with a specific purpose in mind: to find stones which resemble letters in the alphabet. And she has finished one of her collections which you can see above. She uses these as inspiration for her type designs. You may find some of them here.
