I have a bit of a hobby collecting shells and making shell mobiles while we are staying at the beach house.
I got the idea for this mobile from a photo in House and Home magazine.
I thought I could make more of a Westcoast version of that style of mobile. I collected larger oyster shells, crab shells, sand dollars and driftwood. Starfish could be used as well and purchased from Micheals. I also used a foam, rope-covered ball that I’m pretty sure I purchased at Michaels. I used a thick cone shaped grinder bit on the drill and carefully drilled a hole in the center of each item. I had a couple of the shells crack on me and the driftwood even started to smoke, as I was drilling with the grinding bit, so I quickly switched to a regular drill bit for the wood. Apart from that I managed to finish the drilling quite quickly and easily.
