These gorgeous tassel earrings are created using authentic Japanese chiyogami.
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 fashioned from vintage style gold plated bezels which have been embellished with chiyogami paper and fully sealed with a high gloss finish. The tassels are finished with gold threading and the hooks are 18k gold plated nickel free brass.
They have a 8cm drop and come packaged in a beautiful little gift tin.
