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.)

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!

Personalized kanji dogtag necklace says Caleb

Or Kaleb. And I should correct myself right now: I believe this is katakana, rather than kanji. But many of us in the West are so used to thinking of Japanese writing as “kanji”, that we use that as a sort of blanket term. Of course ther is more to learn!

I wasn’t sure if I had shared this necklace – I think it’s a good example showing that a personalized kanji necklace does NOT have to be “girly”. This is a dogtag necklace. This is (in this version) a black dogtag neckklace. Very guy-friendly 🙂

Really I just wanted to point out that you can choose to personalize a dogtag necklace. And it can be guy-friendly. And if not in time for Christmas, well certainly for his next birthday!

Or just because 🙂

Personalized kanji necklace that says Alicia

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 🙂

Your name in Japanese…this pendant says Angela

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!

Personalized earrings that say Ashley

These simple, geometric “Ashley” earrings are one of the new styles I’m working with.

personalized Ashley earrings from paperjewels.com

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?

Your logo on jewelry

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.

California Science Teachers Assocation logo earrings

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!

Personalized earrings that say Elizabeth

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 🙂

This personalized jewelry says Jenny in Japanese kanji

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 😉

Personalized initial jewelry – lariat or belt

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 🙂
