Some 70 years ago several fisher families moved from Madura to Java’s Eastern coast because of the profusion of sea life. During stormy weather, after all the nets were mended, they began making handicrafts from discarded shells. Capiz shells, or Jingle Oysters grow like weeds in shallow sea beds. Before the fishermen got creative, they were only collected for the meat and the shells were discarded. Now nothing is wasted. These capiz shell wind chimes were designed by Andrea Phillips and beautifully handcrafted by these fishermen turned artisans and the wind chimes are assembled in a fair trade workshop in Bali.
