Into Orbit Necklace

  • Description

    Richly shaded in blue, this delicate wafer-thin necklace is made from capiz, 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.

  • Not at all as pictured!

    . . . . .

    I'm so bummed... this is pictured as a beautiful blue but it just arrived and is BLACK. I'm giving it as an end of the year teacher present and this is not at all what I was expecting. :-(
