  • Description

    Frame your photo in the enchantment of butterflies. Filipino artisans handcraft this frame from translucent capiz shell and wire. 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.

    Lovely craftsmanship. This 4x6 frame is a beauty. Can be used either way. Shipping was fast and arrived well packaged for a fragile item. Very happy with my purchase!
