Tiny Shell Crochet Pattern

Hello everyone! This week I scoured the internet in search for a shell pattern which would make a tiny little mermaid crown just a little more special. Unfortunately, I was unable to find one. My defeat inspired me to sit down with my crochet hook and figure one out myself. So that no one else has to suffer through hours of searching, here’s what I was able to come up with.

I am a mother of three young boys who has had a revelation. Recently, I left my full-time, second shift position as a factory worker to live life how I believe it should be lived, with family. My refusal to give up any more of my children's younger years has brought me to this point. Now for my only problem... Though I'm quite confident, I am also very clueless. What do I do from here? Let's figure out this thing called life together, shall we?
