Kanji necklace says Mother – a terrific gift for Mom

Here’s a new necklace, just in time for Mother’s Day! The katakana (kanji) says Haha, which means Mother – and I have already had a request for custom colors on the next one. Here’s the new necklace:

And here’s another view:

The next one’s going to be pink 🙂

(Really just wanted to remind you that we can always work on custom designs and custom colors – and that Mother’s Day isn’t far off!)

Paper Earrings -white heart earrings with flowers

This is a brand-new pair of earrings, which I am about to post onsite. I’ve been having trouble getting just the right pic of them… I really like simple white backgrounds, but when you’re photographing white (mostly white) earrings on white backgrounds, sometimes the detail is hard to get perfect. Still working on it.

But I really do like these earrings and I am determined to do right by them 🙂

These would be just perfect for a first anniversary gift! They are moderate in cost ($34), they’re moderate in size – about 1″ long – and they combine paper jewelry with flowers! You just don’t do better for a first (paper) anniversary gift 🙂

As always they can be customized for a special gift – larger, smaller, and we can play with the colors too. It’s supposed to be special, for your first anniversary. Let’s do that 🙂

Paper earrings for a First Anniversary Gift

This is a new pair of paper earrings in my shop and I’ve already had two customers ask if they could purchase a pair – in a custom color 🙂

paper earrings with green stars or custom colors... a great first anniversary gift

Well of course they can. And actually, I’m going to make another pair too, with a bunch of different color stars. Just for fun. But meantime, I did want to point out that custom colors are always an option. These paper earrings really do make a wonderful, affordable first anniversary gift – and custom colors make them personal, yknow? That’s the way it’s supposed to be!

A gift for Mom! Kanji earrings say Mother or Mom

I just made a new pair of these “Mother” earrings – and put them on my front page! I sat here last night and thought oh boy, Mother’s Day is only a month away! How does the time fly so quickly? So I’m starting some more Mother earrings pronto quick.

The world is full of complications – but this is easy. Kanji earrings that say Mother are a perfect gift for Mother’s Day. Just saying 🙂

And of course you can get custom colors. Or shapes or sizes for that matter – just ask!

Kanji Eternity Earrings – with crystal diamonds

Okay, “diamonds” is a little bit of an exaggeration. The teardrops on these earrings are faceted rhinestones – ‘diamonds’ for us ordinary mortals who have too many bills to pay but still love sparkly pretty earrings! These earrings have the Japanese katakana (kanji) that says Eien, or Eternity – so they are actually wonderful for wedding earrings, or a first anniversary gift from a husband to his new bride 🙂

I actually just sold the pair pictured – and have started a new pair or two for the shop, so stay tuned. Or of course you can request a custom color for any Paper Jewels. Just ask!

PS Diamonds are the birthstone for April – so these earrings (or others with crystal ‘diamonds’) are especially appropriate. Just saying 🙂

Personalized kanji earrings say Millie – new view!

And yes, it’s not actually a (human) model, it’s a mannequin. But it sounds silly to say “mannequin pics”, don’t you think? So – maybe I’ll just starting saying “see the earrings being worn”.

I really do like these Millie earrings – they’re a great red, and on the small(ish) size – so they’re super wearable. Well all Paper Jewels are comfortable, compared to most earrings they’re much lighter in weight – but the shape and size of these Millie earrings are really moderate, and I know a lot of people prefer that. I do myself, more than I used to anyway – I don’t wear huge earrings much anymore 🙂

So what do you think? Pretty cool, huh?

(Oh – yes custom colors are available, and custom kanji too. But you knew that.)

Kanji earrings say Onna, or Woman – new Pics!

Okay, this is not precisely a “model” pic. I’m doing a new series of pics showing the earrings on a life-size mannequin head. Yes, the mannequin is slender and delicate – but it’s a step in the right direction! it’s hard to find a mannequin looks really real – maybe funky, with bad hair days and all – but I figure, showing earrings on a mannequin does at least show what the earrings look like when they’re being worn!

So, what do you think?

I’ll be doing more of these pics – stay tuned!

Oh – did I forget to mention? The kanji Woman earrings are available in custom colors (and sizes) – but you knew that already 🙂 And hey, talk about a perfect first year, paper anniversary gift! Her fave colors – and the kanji says Woman – and they’re paper. Strengthened, lacquered, durable paper… but still paper. This is a win 🙂

Kanji earrings that say Meiyo, or Honor

This is a new pair of earrings, and a (somewhat) new style. You’ll probably have noticed that the katakana (kanji) is similar to the one I use on my dogtag necklace that also says Meiyo.

This is not a concidence. I think it’s very interesting that the “Honor” is the most popular kanji in my shop. It says something about people: they respect honor, they want to commemorate it, and they want to show the world that honor is important. I think that’s kind of wonderful.

So: kanji earrings that say Meiyo or Honor, shown here in dark green – though of course you know that custom colors are available. And custom sizing too.

And for that matter, custom kanji as well. But I do think that Honor is beautiful 🙂

Kanji earrings say Love

And with today being Valentine’s Day (let’s celebrate this day of love!) these earrings seemed especially appropriate!

May all you couples, boyfriend girlfriend or any combo thereof – celebrate the one you love, share with him or her, and have a wonderful day!

Personalized jewelry: the kanji necklace says Emily

Just wanted to show off the personalized kanji necklace I just made – bright pink at the customer request. I love the color (and more importantly, she does too)!

As with the other dogtag pendants in my new line, these are super affordable – custom dogtag pendants with your name in Japanese are just $28! Even with the custom work, the new method of production (with stainless steel dogtag base) is much less labor intensive than the way I used to do it. So: affordable. Great color. Personalized necklace. Casual, fun, and cute 🙂

Which is just what the customer wanted – I love when it works that way!
