I fold my jewelry from yuzen washi and chiyogami . It is a very fibrous paper and the bright prints do not fade in the sunlight.
I put small pieces of stencil plastic in the wings of the cranes, dragonflies, hummers and kimono body and sleeves before gluing.
Then, I coat each piece with a fabric stiffener to seal the paper and stiffen small parts. The earrings and pins are then sprayed with an acrylic laquer for shine.
All ear wires are 14/20 gold coat slipless wire from Rio Grande. In the 25 yrs. I have used these , no customer has ever complained of allergic reaction.
** Adjustable clip earrings are availabe upon request.
All earrings and pins come on a card. The back have the Kanji(Japanese character ) for that item and a Haiku(Japanese poem and/or description of the item.
