Capiz Cascade Suncatchers - 3 styles from Woodstock Chimes
In the 1500s, capiz were used as windowpanes in houses; now they are used in all sorts of home decorations, such as suncatchers, wind chimes and even lampshades
The brilliant Capiz shell is used in windows, lanterns, vases, and many other decorations because it's luster resembles that of mother of pearl shells. Capiz shells come from the "windowpane oyster" and, because of their durability and translucence, capiz shells have been used for thousands of years as a glass substitute. They are farmed in Indonesia and the Philippines. Strung together with strong, invisible nylon cord, the thin, flat translucent pieces provide luminous color.
