Beautiful handcrafted Capiz shell wind chimes in classic natural white. They shimmer in the light, and when placed outside, they create a gentle tinkling sound. Measure approx. 7.5 wide x 19.5" length and hang from a rattan frame.  Durable and designed for outdoor and indoor environments.  

These capiz shells come from a fishing village in Java, where the shell artisans sustainably harvest the shells and shape them. All parts of the capiz (jingle oysters) are used; the meat is used for food, the main part of the shell for artisan crafting and the shell waste for fertilizer. Only full grown shells are harvested from the kelp beds, which provides more space and food source for the young ones to grow.
