Beautiful red glass earrings in red chiyogami design, square shape with a tiny red coral accent bead. Glass pieces measure approxiately .5 inches from top to bottom. The earrings are attached to sterling silver earwires.

These earrings have to be seen to be appreciated! The glass reflects light onto the paper and creates a magnifying effect on the design. The colors often almost glow in the light.

They are made with high quality handmade glass with japanese Chiyogami paper mounted to the underside. The back is then sealed with resin making them waterproof, and a sterling plated bail attached to the back. Applying the resin is a several day process but the result is jewelry that will last indefinately. It is always recommended, however, that the earrings be removed prior to bathing or swimming.

Chiyogami, or washi paper, is traditional Japanese paper silk-screened with beautiful designs and patterns. Most patterns incorporate traditional motifs such as flowers, birds, or geometric patterns in rich colors and often using a lot of gold. The paper is extremely strong and feels almost cloth-like.

All earrings in my shop have sterling silver earwires. They come to you packaged in an organza drawstring bag ready for gift giving.

Many of the these earrings have coordinating pendants . If you don’t see a design you’d like, please feel free to convo me directly to request a custom order. Since the process to make these pendants and earrings takes several days, custom orders will require more time than ready made items.
