Into Orbit Capiz Shell Necklace

Richly shaded in blue, this delicate wafer-thin necklace is made from capiz, the thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes and edged with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process. Before glass windows became available in the Philippines, capiz was used for windows in houses. A beautiful Global Fair Trade gift.
