NOTE TO MY ETSY FRIENDS: I'M GRADUALLY PHASING OUT OF MATERIALS AND COMPONENTS TO CONCENTRATE ON MY HANDCRAFTED JEWELRY LINE. THE BEADS AND COMPONENTS ON MY STORE ARE NOW 40% TO 60% OFF REGULAR PRICES.

You get a 24-piece set of heart-shaped cuts of captivating capiz shells for 14.50. The dimensions are 60 mm. at widest point and 55 mm. top to bottom. There are no holes in the shells for more flexibility and variety of use.

For its combination of characteristics, there is perhaps none more versatile as a natural material for arts and crafts. Dye it, cast it in resin or laminate, work it soft or hard, electroplate it, cut it up for mosaics, hand paint on it, and sundry other artful ways you fancy from jewelry to light diffusion to housewares, capiz lends itself to the stretches of your imagination. Capiz has charmed Westerners since Magellan landed in what is now central Philippines in 1521, eventually becoming a standard decorative material in Spanish colonial architecture. Today it is prized by artists and crafters for its myriad uses.

Please note that the uneven surface in this work of nature comes with the layering that gives capiz its unique luster and translucence. Also there will be an occasional small inverted "v" at the rim since we cut close to the head (the hinge part of the shell) to extract the most durable portions and avoid the more brittle edges.
