Looking for some gorgeous outdoor & patio decorations? Our Capiz Shell Wind Chimes are perfect for you! These unique wind chimes are handmade by artisans in Indonesia out of capiz shells, meaning that they sparkle in the light, and, when placed outside, create a gentle tinkling of the shells. This inverted arch chime features shades of reds, oranges, and yellows to refresh your home décor or patio!
Handmade in Bali
Measures 12.75 x 30" (32.5 x 76.5cm)
Comprised of squares, circles and teardrop capiz shells
Fishing line & hook for hanging
All of our capiz shell chimes and strands come 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.
