Description

Celebrate jubilee in a joyful necklace of painted capiz. Bright disks in peach, fuchsia, orange and blue. Capiz is the thin, off-white shell of the windowpane oyster. Artisans wash the shells with soap and water, then soak them in a weak acid solution. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes, edged with soldered brass wire. The shell may be smoked, dyed or painted.

    I purchased this necklace at the WInson-Salem store and every time I wear it, I am overwhelmed by the number of gracious compliments I receive. I love being able to tell people how the necklace was made, and I'm sure many of them have gone to the W-S store to look at the selection of beautiful, hand-made jewelry offered there. I did not buy the matching earring because they seemed a little too long for my taste; however, I noticed on the website a different, shorter version is offered, so I am placing an order soon to complete my set.
