Beautiful round capiz shells are fashioned to make this large, elegant chandelier. It makes a beautiful visual statement in any room or garden. You could feed a corset through the wireframe to create a stunning hanging lamp.
These capiz shells come from a fishing village in Java, where shell artisans sustainably harvest the shells and shape them. 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 grow. This chime is made with care in a fair trade, in-house workshop in Bali.
This chandelier measurers 9” x 24”.
