I have always said that nature is so creative and fascinating that it overpasses human imagination. For example it creates so spectacular creatures nobody would dare to imagine. One of these fantastic creatures is capiz , the bivalve shell of a mollusc that can be found mainly in the Philippines. It has a spectacular translucent body that makes it reflect light and this way looks great. No wonder local people and artisans use it for interior design, jewels and other beautiful decorations. This Elegant White Capiz Pendant from West Elm is the perfect example of their exquisite craftsmanship.
These “glass oysters” as they are called are the perfect material for the wonderful lamp shade of this pendant light. All the shells used for manufacturing this item are natural and are skillfully polished by the local artisans. The nickel frame adds a plus of glamour and spark to the pendant and the square shaped shells reflect the light of the three 60 watt light bulbs used in a magnificent way. The pendant looks great in a big and luxury living room and it sells on West Elm for about $299. It is a wonderful piece of work and it will create an amazing light effect in any home.
