These Sea Life and Shell Displays are inspired by Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History. The little seashell stands were made by cutting a 1" diameter dowel into 3/8" thick disks, then drilling holes in the center and inserting brass rods.

Framed Coauina ShellsFramed coquina, aka butterfly shells, from Sanibel Island. A pencil grid was drawn onto a piece of black mat board. Then all the shells were glued into the center of each square of the grid. The frame used is Ikea's Ribba.
