Capiz Shell Star Ornament
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.
