Capiz materials are one of the Philippines top-most exports and are used to embellish almost anything from lamps, curtains, plates and home decors. They are commonly found in Philippine homes, as decorative parts in windows.
They are made from dried bivalve shells of the Placuna placenta akin to the Panay Group of Islands particularly in thr province of Capiz. They are very productive and easy to propagate in aquafarms.
My other really fave Capiz earrings:
My 2 inch Capiz earrings with leopard spots
My divine green Capiz earrings with animal prints
These earrings make great conversation pieces in parties, as long as you don't mind having people stare at your ears all night.
