Long Oval Capiz Shell Necklace
Alluring, pearly, delicate necklace handmade with capiz, the thin, off-white, translucent shell of a marine mollusk.
Created by artists in the Philippines, the labor-intensive process includes shells that are washed, soaked, dried, cut into shapes, edged with metal wire, and finished with varnish.
Saffy Handicrafts markets handmade crafts for small artisan workshops, and specializes in capiz shell products. Artisans benefit from educational seminars, vocational training, financial and medical assistance.
