Shell Chimes

Many home decor products from the Philippines are made from shells. It's not a surprise since the country is surrounded by water and is made up of thousands of islands. Many folks rely on the sea for a living. We have some chimes made from seashells including capiz on hand ready to ship to your home. 

This beautiful chime is made up of small seashells found on the shores of the Philippines.
