Little Shells, Little Shells

Little Shells, Little Shells

A hanging lamp made of tiny shells. This is a common native ornament found in coastal areas like my hometown in Bicol here in the Philippines. The design is very intricate and weaving these delicate shells is quite a challenge as you have to make sure they won’t chip or break as you try to form them into different patterns.

This lamp is about 1 foot and a half long and we usually use a yellow bulb to light it up. The tiny shell used in this lamp is about the size of your pinky fingernail. Quite amazing, isn’t it? 🙂
