STORY
Handcrafted by artisans in the Philippines, this bold black and brass necklace is made of wafer-thin capiz, the thin shell of a marine mollusk. First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes, dyed 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!

  • Brass necklace featuring three pentagons of painted black capiz, edged in brass
