I can’t say much about sea snail shells except that they are really joy to draw. The snail shells seem to be perfect spiral home to their owners. Later, when the snails are gone, they become a perfect home for hermit crabs. And after the crabs are gone too, they eventually get broken and expose the iridescent spiral interior. And when crushed, the fragments get lost in the beach sand. Yes, the shells are cool subjects to draw too. I play with delicate textures, subdued colours, and shadows. This helps me break out of the shell in my sketching endeavours.
