I took a shot at making some grips from a freshwater mussel I picked up dead at a local lake. I learned a lot playing around and I think I've got a system that will work well. It is embedded in resin so it is strong.

The trick was making a curved shell flat. I may make some for my 1911 next.

I made a silicon mold to form the grip back side contours. I then put resin in the mold and placed the shell on top to cure.
Sounds like an article. :)
