Capiz shell chandeliers give off the most amazing translucent light. I have had a love affair with them for years; I especially like the way they sound if a light breeze catches the shells. Here is a picture of mine ~
I purchased the chandy from Target about 4 years ago & added a chain for some oomph & covered the chain & wire with a chain sleeve from Ballard. I have mine on a dimmer which lends itself to every type of mood lighting possible.
These photos depict the casual drama that capiz shell lighting can bring to s space ~
I have culled the marketplace to bring you a few capiz shell lights to give your rooms a little tropical flair.
