I am currently working on some new items for my shop using natural oyster shells. The shells have been sourced locally in Houma. Reusing them in this way helps prevent them from going to a landfill. The oyster shells have been cleaned and disinfected for health and safety before they are "prettied up" as home decor. Check back in the product listings for this new line and at my Facebook page found at www.facebook.com/CynthiaWelchDesigns/.
