For years, when talking about shells of pearl oysters or shellfish, people used to to think of mother-of-pearl inlaid sheffs of pearl oysters are inlaid on wood to make paintings, cupboards, tables, chairs and beds, which produce glittering and colourful hues, hence the products are much sought after by customers.

You forgot to mention that the dust from working with the shells is very harmful to ones heath, creating yet another factor that makes working with shell a bit more complicated for the artist.
