Description

Carry a soothing sunset with you all day in these earrings from the Philippines. The Sunset Capiz Earrings from our artisan partner SAFFY, Inc. feature capiz shell. Artisans wash and soak the thin shells before cutting them into shape and edging them with wire in a labor‒intensive process. Before glass windows became available in the Philippines, capiz was used for windows in houses!
