Small Capiz and Wood Chime


These capiz chimes sparkle in the light, and when placed outside, create a gentle tinkling of the shells. Our capiz supply comes from a fishing village in Java, where our shell artisans sustainably harvest the shells and shape them. All parts of the capiz (jingle oyster) are used; the meat is used for food, the main part of the shell for handicraft, and the shell waste for fertilizer. Only full-grown shells are picked from the kelp beds, where they grow, which provides more space and food source for the young ones to grow. All Capiz chimes are made with care in a fair trade, in-house workshop in Bali. They come made with fishing line and a hook for hanging and are packaged flat in a polybag with a ring label for easy displaying.
