Description

The colors of tropical water and sky, from Filipino artisans of Saffy Handicrafts. Delicate wafer-thin earrings are rings of capiz shell, shading white to teal. 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.
