Our handmade Capiz Shell Star Ornament is elegantly crafted from beautiful capiz shells, commonly known as “Windowpane Oyster”. These translucent oyster shells are artfully handcrafted to make a luminous “stained glass” holiday star ornament that you will treasure.

This Capiz Shell Christmas Star Ornament design is a traditional Filipino Christmas decoration, called a parol. 

Fair Trade Artisans in the Philippines hand shape and paint each section of thin shell, edging the shell with soldered wire. Artisans are part of a Fair Trade foundation established by a Belgian Nun to create alternative sources of livelihood for impoverished women and youth in marginalized areas of Manila. Read more about the artisans.
