Jizo & Chibi: Tiny Silver Chibi Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Joaness #10!

The latest fashion accessory to hit Hollywood is here: Jizo & Chibi!

Valerie Johns, the designer, is a psychotherapist, writer, and artist who has created a new jewelry collection that reflects the spirituality of ancient Buddhist wisdom. It is jewelry with a path.

There are two collections – the Jizo Jewelry Collection and the Chibi Jewely Collection. Pieces come in big and small sizes and range from $50 to $200 in gold vermeil and sterling silver.

Jizo, one of the most beloved and revered Bodhisattvas in Mahayana Buddhism, is the protector and guide of women, children, and travelers. Jizo is particularly special to women, often giving great strength to pregnant women, worried mothers and anyone who feels lost on the journey of their lives.

Chibi, the Japanese word for small child – or little one – when worn as jewelry may create a sense of centering within adults. Chibi can be playful, floating on its chain to be upright, sideways or upside-down. Chibi may help us to connect with our own inner child or to feel close to our children. Chibi is the featured character in Valerie's two books, "what i heard & what you said" and "Why a Fly?".

Whether it is finding a way into ourselves; for Jizo to hold our inner self safely, or a means for reflection on a safe journey in life or the well-being of a child, Jizo and Chibi may help provide a beginning to a path of greater awareness.



Standing Jizo with pearl necklace (gold)

The standing Jizo Bodhisattva is holding the traditional wish-fulfilling pearl to light up the darkness of people’s suffering. In brushed 18k gold vermeil, he is 1″ tall and rounded on both front and back; soothing to the touch, he is on a 16″ or 18″ chain.


Special Edition Chibi with white topaz (silver)

The Limited Edition Sterling Chibi comes with a fixed white topaz set into the 16″ or 18″ chain, the setting of which is Valerie’s original design: holding a star for Chibi to wish on. Chibi is 1″ tall, 1/8″ deep.

Take advantage of this special 25% OFF discount until Fathers Day, June 20th!
