Handcrafted by artisans in the Philippines, these earrings of wafer-thin leaf motif pieces are 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.

    • Very pretty and great fun to wear!!

      These are lovely - a great combination of the "veins" in the leaf which have a soft sheen and the shell background which is sheer and matte. They look great with a variety of clothes! One caution: add backers to prevent losing one. Love them!...
