Leaf Shell Earrings

These earrings of wafer-thin leaf motif pieces are made from capiz, the thin shell of a marine mollusk and handcrafted by artisans in the Philippines.  First artisans wash and soak shells. After they have dried, artisans cut the shells into shapes and edge them with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process.
