Triangular Shell-inlaid Pendant and Monggo Shell NecklaceAs one of the world’s best known tropical regions, the Philippines abound with lush greenery, coconut palms engulfing the islands, and pristine beaches…

In fact, the Philippines prides itself in having one of the world’s richest marine life in its 7,000+ islands —an abundant resource of different exotic seashells.

It’s no wonder, with a thriving fashion accessories industry (costume jewelry) in one of its most popular island-provinces, Cebu’s local artisans are simply the best in crafting unique, top-quality shell beads and pendants. They practically live with the seashells!

That’s what makes Philippine natural beads made from sea shells and coco shells a cut above the rest —bringing the beauty of this tropical paradise to you.
