    I really like these. I am trying to figure out how to attach them to the gazebo at the EDR.

      I was going to buy those from wildthings but I read a review that said they are actually really flimsy disks. Kinda cheap looking. FYI.

      I bought two curtains from Cost Plus World Market. They were kinda expensive, but they did have brown and white versions on sale for $17. I had to buy the white ones- you know, it was my vision.

      Hopefully they make it back in one peice, because I will be willing to sell them to a BTB. I didn't realize there was this much interest in them or I would have shared all of my searching. I searched for capiz strands for a long time!

        How much did you end up paying? I am going to check their site right now. and if they come back in one piece and I can wait long enough, I would totally buy them from you!

          $35 each. I thought they were actually $17each when I lugged them up to the register. They had a sign that said "tortoise capiz shells 50%" and I couldn't find any of the capiz shells that were labeled "tortoise." They also have REALLY pretty turquoise ones Carly but I think they were $35 each too!

            Yeah, I am checking them out now... I wanted white also, and I only see the blue or tortoise... I will continue the hunt. I am nervous of the plastic ones, but it may end up being what I buy

              They also had these. I thought about buying a couple and hang them from the corners of the chuppah if I decided I couldn't afford the whole curtain. I thought they were cute.

                I also bought these capiz napkin rings. I thought they would look cute. I haven't received them yet.

                      4" Giant Amalea Capiz Shell Strands~ 80" Long! Back In Stock

                      These are kinda neat but may be incredibly too BIG = ) I like the tan and white look though- real natural
