Green Butterfly Bookmark


Don’t flit from page to page. Keep your place in that favourite book. This springtime butterfly holds your page with dark finished metal and translucent capiz shell. Capiz is 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.
