Whispered Secrets Earrings

Lovely in pearly white, these delicate, wafer-thin earrings are made from capiz, the thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes and edged with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process. Before glass windows became available in the Philippines, capiz was used for windows in houses. Capiz, silver-plated brass - 1D inches - Matches our Moon Phase Necklace, sku 7914560 & our Whispered Secrets Necklace, sku 7914080 - Handcrafted in the Philippines
