We propose to gather shells from the fouled beaches and use these shells to make art objects, such as jewelry and wearables. These are shells that have been stained by the oil and should not be reintroduced into the ecosystem. We think such shells will be beautiful in their own right and remind the wearer/buyer of the natural disaster transpiring in the Gulf. These projects will also act as a lasting and public reminder of the infinite value of our environment.
