I am on


Christmas Shell and Passion Parade Friday

Have you ever had that "I just had to get it moment"? I am sure you did! That's what I felt with this tree ornament.

I was browsing around the holiday lane section of the store where I work, when these ornaments caught my eye. The feeling became mutual when I saw the label that says "Made in the Philippines"

Without further thinking, I grabbed all three of different style. It was in 70% off and with my back office discount, I got it for a price I couldn't refuse!

These ornaments are made of Capiz shell or oyster shell. These are the shells were thinned with chemicals until became translucent. They are used as alternative to stained glass commonly found in the Philippines. They are also commonly used for making lamp shades, fashion accessories, window panes, Christmas lantern and many more. Capiz shell is known for it's elegant and formal look comparable to mother of pearl.
