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.
