Keep updated on the selected gems from Japan!

by Yuriko Hirose

For new year's celebration or any celebratory occasions

The harmony of red and white circles symbolizes infinite Wa (meaning both circle and peace in Japanese). Decorated with evergreen pine-needles symbolizing eternal prosperity, it is a gorgeous and graceful ornamentation for celebratory occasions.

JIYUKAJIN's high quality Mizuhiki twine is made with a paper core of twisted Japanese paper wound with fancy yarn, which is resistant to bending or water. The quality of materials has been tested by being soaked in the water for three months.

As each piece is handmade, please be aware before purchasing that the size and hue of each item will vary slightly.

Creator: Yuriko Hirose

Mizuhiki are traditional decorative cords fashioned from strips of handmade washi paper that are wound together, starched, and then colored. Because they retain their shape when bent, mizuhiki lend themselves readily to the creation of three-dimensional ornaments. Ten years ago, artist Yuriko Hirose visited New Zealand on a cultural exchange trip and introduced mizuhiki to her friends there. Their response inspired her to teach herself everything there was to know about mizuhiki, and to begin making them as works of art. She has found that combinations of the awaji-musubi, the basic mizuhiki knot, are a simple way to add a bit of flair to everyday settings, and her products range from home décor goods to fashion accessories. With the elegant presence of precious metal yet so lightweight, the necklaces featured here embody traditional craftsmanship applied to modern, versatile forms.
