Oysters

What's almost as good as eating a freshly shucked oyster? Enjoying the beautiful shell in your interiors. Oyster shells exist on anything from lamps, mirrors, chandeliers and if the shell is to au natural for you, beautiful antique oyster plates are so intricately painted they can be displayed. For the crafters out there, if you come across some shells, you can make a lot of these things yourself!

I became fascinated with these plates from when I was little girl going to antique stores with my mom. I think I was so intrigued with how the plate was cutout specifically for the oysters and decorated so beautifully.
