When the breeze catches the capiz chime you hear a gentle tinkling of the shells. The capiz shells come from a fishing village in Java, where 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. Chimes come with fishing line and a hook for hanging and made with care in a fair trade workshop in Bali.
