Dreaming of a white Christmas? This Snowflake Capiz Ornament, handcrafted by artisans of the SAFFY organization in the Philippines, will help you set the scene.
Capiz shells come from mollusk and was the primary material used for windows in the Philippines before glass became available.
To create these delicate ornaments, artisans must soak the Capiz shells, then cut them into shape, and finally add edging wiring. Their handmade nature means just like real snowflakes, no two ornaments are exactly alike!
Natural colored capiz, silver‒plated brass sheet and wire, silver‒colored string
4.75W x 5H inches
