Here's an idea for those of you that don't have easy access for shells.  What about seafood restaurants?  Maybe they would be willing to let you have the used shells?  You would then treat them the same way as I do with a bleach soak.  You could also check with any fish markets in your area.  I would be happy to ship to you but I think it would be cheaper to buy them from a craft shop even.

Anyways, that was my brain storm for the day and now I have to go back to less smart than in this moment :mwaha:

In my head I have  a vision of a cascade (waterfall) of oyster shells. glueing them together and stategically placing them so as they melt they cause strings of wax to fall (remember when we use to put candles in mateus roise bottles and theyd drip down sides), into the recieving shells below them.

So you then get a wax sculpture with posibility of placing a tealight below the bottom shells to warm the wax and throw the fragrance again.

Yes I have a very strange mind lol

Oh I LOVE that idea!  I spent an hour at the beach today at high tide but managed to get a huge amount of shells.  I've posted pictures on my personal profile.  I wonder how I would get enough wax in there to do the cascade....

Hmmmmm - I have some playing to do...
