Charleston, SC
Oysters are extremely important to the Lowcountry's ecosystem which is why there are so many oyster farms that line the coast to help keep our waters clean.  My tribute to these amazing mollusks is my jewelry.  Numerous shells are constantly being washed up onto the shore.  Instead of being discarded and forgotten, they now get to live on as gold-accented pieces of art.   I hand-gather each shell, either from the Battery downtown Charleston or James Island, and match them to their imperfectly perfect mate.
