Windchimes - Fair Trade Capiz Shell 'Chandelier' Turquoise
Coming soon! Please check back.
Some 70 years ago several fisher families moved from Madura to Java’s Eastern coast because of the profusion of sea life. During stormy weather, after all the nets were mended, they began making handicrafts from discarded shells. Capiz shells, or Jingle Oysters grow like weeds in shallow sea beds. Before the fishermen got creative, they were only collected for the meat and the shells were discarded. Now nothing is wasted. This sustainable line of capiz shell chimes is beautifully handcrafted by these fishermen-turned-artisans and are assembled in a fair trade workshop in Bali.
These windchimes may be used outdoors in a spot that is protected from the wind or as a home decor piece indoors. These chandelier-style chimes can be made into a hanging light fixture.
Measurements: 9" diameter/approximately 24" long
