Bring a festive summer spirit with you where you go with these unique earrings from the Philippines. The Summer Fair Earrings from 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!
