These earrings are made of Capiz, a thin shell of a marine mollusk. The artisans wash and soak the shells before letting them dry and cutting them into shapes to use for jewelry. They were once used for windows in houses in the Philippines before glass windows were available. Lastly, a finishing coat of varnish completes the process of the earrings.
The rich shades decorate these delicate earrings to make them unique and pop with any outfit.
