    There’s nothing quite like being outdoors. Wear the Green Leaf Earrings on days when you find yourself stuck inside! These earrings from the Philippines feature capiz, the thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes, dyed 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 earrings

    The pictures don't do justice to how pretty these are. They look so elegant with my holiday outfits. Because the capiz is so lightweight, these are also extremely comfortable. There is no "drag" on your earlobes.
