Share peace and harmony during a hectic season with the Share Peace Ornament, a wonderful gift for neighbors or colleagues.

This ornament is made from capiz shell, which is a protective shell of a type of mollusk. The artisans who make these ornaments partner with Saffy Handicrafts, a social services organization in the Philippines. The process is very labor-intensive - artisans have to first wash and soak the thin capiz shells. Then they cut them into shape and edge them with a wire to create these fun ornament shapes.

Did you know? Capiz was the primary material used for making windows before glass became widely available in the Philippines. 

Capiz, gold‒color plated brass, gold ribbon
8cm long and 6cm high
