Chiyogami Light Blue and Gold Seigaiha Round Pendant with Chain
Handmade pendant with chain in a very light blue and gold pattern. The pendant is made of a 1.5 inch wide laser cut birch wood covered with Japanese chiyogami paper and finished off with a shiny resin. It has a lead and nickel-free brass bail and chain, measuring 24 inches in length. This is a lovely statement piece that is very lightweight and comfortable to wear.
The paper design of this piece is called Seigaiha (or sekaiha) which literally means "blue sea and waves". Seigaiha is a Japanese motif dating back to the 6th century. The water and waves symbolize power in resistance. They also represent hope for happiness and long life. I have seen this design in gold, black, red, and navy, but I think this one is by far my favorite, very muted and calming.
Because of the paper and wood, I advise to always take your Sweet Space jewelry off before bathing or swimming. Also, please do not spray alcohol products like hairspray or perfume because it can damage the piece.
Due to the nature of the silk-screened paper the placement of the design may vary.
