Capiz Shells: An Elegant Natural Resource

The Capiz is the outer shell of a marine mollusk, and can be found in the shallow coastal waters of the Philippines. Capiz shells are also known as windowpane oyster. Empty shells are soaked in freshwater and then scraped to produce the desired luster.

Capiz shells are more frequently seen made into lampshades, tablewares, windchimes, chandeliers, candle holders, jewelries and other decorative objects. Crafters such as interior designers, architects and developers are focusing more on natural materials because of their elegant and unique appeal.
