This unusual pendant light is like nothing I've ever seen before. Made from shells encrusted onto shell , like something from a mermaids grotto. The structure is made from Capiz shell disks also know as The windowpane oyster. These shells have been used for thousands of years as a glass substitute because of their durability and translucence. On the outer surface are smaller shells that give a wonderful texture. This pendant is supplied with the chain and cable and should be installed by a qualified electrician . it takes a bayonet bulb and gives a wonderful glow.
