Soft Shimmer Capiz Necklace
3 in stock
Article number: Philippines

This necklace has a soft shimmer that can only be achieved through use of capiz shell. The thin shell of the windowpane oyster had once been used for windows in houses, before glass windows became available in the Philippines. Now it can be dyed a variety of colors for use in unique jewelry pieces such as this.

SAFFY, Inc. stands for Social Action for Filipino Youth. SAFFY, Inc. markets handmade crafts for many small artisan workshops, and specializes in capiz shell items. Artisans benefit from educational seminars, vocational training, financial and medical assistance. An in-house Product Designer assists artisan groups in the development of new product lines.

SAFFY was founded in 1966 by Sr. Juliaan Mullie, a Belgian nun, to create alternative sources of livelihood for impoverished women and youth in marginalized areas of Manila. It expanded to serve communities in need by launching social development programs. SAFFY, Inc. is a member of the WFTO, and is affiliated with Advocate of Philippine Fair Trade, Inc., Asia Fair Trade Forum and Philippine Fair Trade Forum.
