    I love how the shape of the etched bicones mimics the sun rays on the metal chandeliers–not to mention how the light beams through them! Very nice! :)

    Definitely summer beach glam ear rings! I really like the mix of textures and materials. I had a chandelier made with capiz shells. It had long strings of shells that made great wind chimes.

    These earrings are stunning. The seaglass bicones light up next to the capiz shell.
