Capiz Pendants are one of the most simple, charming, and affordable additions for any room that needs a happy pick-me-up. They come in all colors but I love the neutral shells that pick up varying shades of light and add to the airy, whimsical feel of these organic decorations. Some are made for lighting and others are merely mobile charms meant for aesthetics.
I first saw one of these capiz pendants when we were buying our home. The owner had a white capiz dangling above the baby’s crib and it was incredibly beautiful. For such a small item, it really added a lot of personality to the room.
I have the second one from the top hanging in my studio in a darker shade of sand, it has some warmer gold tones that appear only when the sunlight hits it. On a breezy summer day, it also has a subtle chime affect when the windows open and a gust of wind flows through the hanging shels. Ahhh…. so relaxing!
I bought mine at World Market for around $50, but I also have seen some nice ones at West Elm, Pier 1 Imports, and Pottery Barn in a range of prices.
If you don’t need one inside, there’s always the deck, or a tree in the yard under a hammock!
