Capiz, also known as Windowpane Oyster, is an abundant natural resource, used both for food and for its translucent, opulent shell.
These elegant, artisan earrings are handmade in the Philippines from legally and sustainably harvested capiz shell. Each piece is meticulously hand-painted.
Each shell piece measures 1.4 x 0.8 inches and hangs from silver-plated hooks.
Fair Trade made.
Saffy Handicrafts has been a cornerstone of the Fair Trade community in the Philippines for 3 decades. They have provided training, employment and assistance to countless men and women.
Acacia Creations is proud to team up with them in creating new and exclusive capiz jewelry designs. Each piece of jewelry is handmade from delicate shell at their studio in Manila and continues Saffy's firm dedication to fair trade.
The mission of Acacia Creations has always been to improve lives in a long-lasting and sustainable way. We go beyond fair trade by creating jobs, providing training, and giving back to communities through our education and healthcare initiatives. We work directly with hundreds of craftsmen and women at our Nairobi, Kenya studio and across East Africa to improve their skills and product designs.
In 2013, our passion for beautiful, hand-crafted items led us to Asia where we have expanded our fair trade partnerships. We're now proud to work with extremely talented artisans in Thailand, Vietnam, India and the Philippines.
