The balance of cool silver and blue tones in the Moon Phase Necklace will have you looking lunar. This necklace from the Philippines features capiz, the thin shell of a marine mollusk.
First artisans wash and soak shells. After the shells have dried, they are cut into shapes, dyed and edged with metal wire. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labor-intensive process.
This necklace has a silver-plated brass chain with 10 capiz circles in smoked, natural, and ombre gray. The capiz circles measure 0.75 inches in diameter and the necklace measures 22.75 inches in length.
