I know it sounds disgusting to frame a mirror in oyster shells,
but in the right application it would look really great.
And what I love most is that it would not be expected, and it would bring an element of curiosity out of your guest, which is always good.
One of my design trademarks is to accessorize with items that almost always stir a question out of a house-guest.
Like: What is that ? Where did you ever find it ? How did you ever think of using it for that purpose ?
Built-in ice breakers are priceless. And you won't appreciate it until you need one.
Over a powder room sink would be perfect.
