Fireworks, kadomatsu, pancit, biko, pan dulce, eating grapes or 12 round fruits, and mochi pounding are among the many cultural traditions to celebrate the new year. These earrings were inspired by the kagamimochi found in many Japanese homes...learn to make these at the store demonstrations...or join us at the Pearl City store for a make/take on Thursday, December 30th from 10:30am-12noon and 2:30pm-3:30pm! Great to give as a gift or wear them yourself! Thank you for your support, it was a very fun and creative year! 2011 is sure to bring more creative ideas and inspirations!
