I just finished this dogtag necklace that has the katakana (kanji) that says Alicia. I am loving this vivid red color 🙂
Yes, I can do more formal necklaces than the dogtag style if that’s what the customer wants (and have several examples onsite to choose from). But you know, the dogtag is really popular right now – I think because it’s unpretentious, and kinda goes with everything (well except dressy dressy) – and everybody can relate. And of course it can be for guys or girls – that goes without saying.
Even in red 🙂
These personalized earrings say Millie (or Milly) in Japanese katakana (more commonly referred to, here in the West, as Kanji). The vivid red color is a customer favorite, maybe because Christmas is coming? Not sure – but it really is a great color 🙂
And of course you can change the color – choose your favorite.
And the name. Choose your favorite 🙂
This teardrop necklace ssays Angela in Japanese kanji. This pretty robin’s egg blue color and antiqued silver “frame” make this design one of my most popular styles.
One of the great things about this style – besides the graceful shape and affordable cost – is that it can be made in antiqued brass or silver, and the personalized pendant can be any color. You can really make it your own. Your fave color, your choice of finish, your name. Personal is what it’s all about 🙂
P.S. And for an anniversary gift? Come on guys, this works!
These simple, geometric “Ashley” earrings are one of the new styles I’m working with.
They’re lacquered paper backed with brass – so they take less time – and they cost less. Plus they’re cute, and even with the brass backing, they’re still lightweight enough to be comfy.
And – stay tuned. This type of earrings can be personalized with your choice of phrases or words, as well as names. Got a secret code word? An acronym that’s full of meaning to you and your best bud, but nobody else? A symbolic word the meaning of life? (Yes, that could be 42. But then people might think that’s your age, and if it’s not, maybe that wouldn’t work.)
Think about it – what secret word would you like to see?
These “your logo on jewelry” earrings were a recent customer request. I used to do quite a few of these in various styles (and will be doing more). So this is just the tip of the iceberg lately.
The earrings were made for the Californai Science Teachers Assocation. They’re kind of fun, don’t you think?
More styles on the way soon!
This is one of the new styles I’m introducing – personalized earrings, made with your name in Japanese kanji. Slender, with brass backings. Affordable.
These earrings say Elizabeth:
And I have to add – I love the red. You’d like your earrings to have a little extra pizzazz, you want them comfortable and not huge but with impact?
Go with color. Yes 🙂
These lacquered paper, personalized kanji earrings are made with one of my favorite shapes – the shield. It just works well, it’s graceful, the earrings are petite…but big enough to have presence – and the kanji is pretty!
These have the kanji that says Jenny:
And no, I didn’t make them for myself, I haven’t been called “Jenny” for a while now. And Jen or Jennifer use other kanji. We can do those too 😉
I’ve been playing with the idea of making some chain belts – accented, of course, with some personalized lacquered paper drops. For instance, this lariat necklace could be made with sturdier chain (or faux leather, perhaps) and become a very snazzy belt:
Stay tuned for a bit (or come back next week). I’m going to try it 🙂
Kanji jewelry with her name in Japanese – or your name. Such a pretty, easy to wear necklace – with customizable colors (and names) of course:
The other advantage of this necklace is that, since it has a “cabochon setting” (the slightly-antiqued silver plated frame for the glass-and-paper pendant) it takes less time to prepare: so you can order it, up to a week before Mother’s Day – and get it on time. Just in case you forgot or something.
But of course you won’t forget Mother’s Day. Right? Right 😉
Okay, I lose track, all right? I just wanted to show you these new earrings. They are personalized, part of my “Your Name in Japanese” collection, and I think the size and shape really work.
The earrings are only about 1″ long. The golden (raw) brass leverbacks are comfortable, much kinder to the skin than plated earwires – and considerably less expensive than goldfilled ones (which can be used too, by special arrangement). And, well, I think the slightly curvy, triangle shape is pretty cool.
Let me know what you think 😉
(Of course the colors as well as the kanji can be personalized, too!)
