Capiz Diamond Earrings

Reduced price $16 $4.99

Teardrops of wafer-thin, dyed capiz shell are surrounded by a double strand of delicate wire in this set of Filipino earrings. Capiz is the thin, off-white shell of the windowpane oyster. Divers retrieve the shells from the local sea (holding their breath to complete the task!) then makers wash and soak them. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes. A wire edge and a shiny coat of varnish complete this labour-intensive process.
