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 🙂
