koana's Shop Announcement

Stylish handmade/handcrafted Japanese inspired Origami and Kanzashi paper jewelry, accessories and crafts with a unique mix of modern and traditional design. All of my items items are designed and crafted with care and attention to detail. My goal is to create beautiful items that can be enjoyed and used for every sort of occasion, from everyday casual fashions to special gifts for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and other special moments.

All of my paper items are made with strong Japanese Washi Paper or custom Vellum Paper. All paper pieces are coated with a special seal to make them long lasting and durable. You can wear them year round, even in the rain!

In addition to my paper pieces, I also offer macrame and hemp bracelets, necklaces, and headbands, as well as beautiful Swarovski jewelry and polymer clay charms and beads. Some of the items in my shop were made as a collaboration between myself and my twin sister, Nadia Velez, and will be marked as such, including any items that Nadia made on her own.

I take great pride in making all of my items by hand, including making custom, one-of-a-kind color palettes for my paper jewelry pieces. I'll be happy to create a custom item just for you! Just send me a convo with color choice and design idea to get started. You can also email me at contact [!at]
