Capiz Half-Moon Earrings


Earrings with seaside style. 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.

I love this design. The capiz shell is tremendously light and pretty. As with most TTV jewelry, these earring are more beautiful in person. I know they will be a favourite.
