Jizo & Chibi are a line of jewelry that has a very special meaning behind them.
Valerie Johns first encountered Jizo on Miyajima Island, just off Hiroshima, Japan. The Jizo was a charming little statue that was found in a garden on the island. A tour guide told her that the statue was Jizo who is the protector of children: healthy, sick, unborn, and never born.
Chibi is a Japanese word used to describe a “small child”. The idea behind the Chibi jewelry is to help the wearer to reconnect with their inner child.
Both are available in adorable jewelry from Jizo & Chibi (www.JizoandChibi.com).
I received two Chibi necklaces to do this review. One for an adult and one for a child (my daughter). The Chibi necklace features a little person shaped figure (he sort of reminds me of a Gingerbread man).
Our Chibis arrived in their own boxes, gently resting inside a small organza pouch.
The necklaces are very dainty and the chains are very thin and light weight. I was concerned that my daughter might break it or get it caught in her hair, but so far, so good. I take my necklace off at night and hang it from a necklace hook in my jewelry case to make sure it doesn’t get a knot in it.
