This large chandelier of gorgeous capiz shells makes a beautiful visual statement in any room or garden. You can enjoy it just like it is or feed a corset through the wireframe to create a stunning hanging lamp! The chandelier measurers 9" x 24”.
These capiz shells come from a fishing village in Java, where Fair Trade artisans sustainably harvest and shape the shells. All parts of the capiz (jingle oyster) are used; the meat is used for food, the main part of the shell for handicraft, and the shell waste for fertilizer. Only full-grown shells are picked from the kelp beds, where they grow, which provides more space and food source for the young ones to the grow.
Handmade with care in a Fair Trade workshop in Bali.
