SooP creates pieces using authenticated Japanese chiyogami from Kyoto, Japan. We use only the highest quality product available on the market today. The paper is handmade, not mass produced.
The time-consuming nature and man-power needed to produce a single sheet of chiyogami makes it one of the most sought after, and also one of the most beautiful, papers in the world.
The creation of the patterns for chiyogami papers began in the Edo period in (1603 to 1868) and the patterns were used originally for accessories in the house and to enliven the interior.
These earrings are treasures to cherish. The beautiful red and white paper with gold accents has been set behind crystal clear Czech glass which is then placed in quality sterling silver triple plated bezel cups with solid 925 sterling silver hooks. They come nestled in a matching gift tin.
