Sunday at Japonica

Thank you everyone for joining us at Japonica. It was great meeting all the committed members and friends of the Pacific Asian American Women Bay Area Coalition. Yummy foods, lots of eye candy and the introduction of Paradisus Silver Jewelry to new buyers and old friends made it a fun afternoon at Japonica.

If you haven’t been to Japonica, you MUST stop by. If you’ve forgotten a special event, need a hostess gift, need a card or just a great cup of coffee, this is the place to get it. It’s got great gifts selected with great taste that will make anyone happy and that includes flowers.

Thank you, Val and PAAWBAC!!!

Our First Post


Welcome to “Inside Paradisus” This is the first entry to a new site, a “blog” we’ve created to keep you current with Paradisus.  This is our way of giving you an inside glimpse into what keeps us busy, what inspires us, and why we love creating Paradisus.

The First Half of 2009

Valentine’s Day at Bloomies


The year opened with a two day Trunk Show in Bloomingdales, San Francisco, on Valentine’s Day weekend.  Many San Franciscans as well as long time loyal Hawaii customers came to see our debuting of the Spring additions to the line.  We’re proud to say that many boyfriends and husbands “did well” as they went home with Paradisus for their Valentine.

The Merrie Monarch Festival


Held in the coastal town of Hilo, Hawaii this world renowned festival gave Paradisus the opportunity to introduce the latest items in the Sonny Ching Collection. To further mark the four-day event, Hālau Nā Mamo O Puʻuanahulu, under the direction of Kumu Hula William “Sonny” Ching proudly took home a multitude of awards.  Once again, the masterful dancing of all the contestants reverberates and celebrates the culture of the hula.  Congratulations to all those that participated!

Show Us the Bling!

colored diamonds

Spring gave us a chance to focus on the new Fall Winter designs.  A couple of overwhelming yet inspiring days were spent at the Tucson Gem Show.  This year we knew we couldn’t leave the heat without some cool sapphires and diamonds.  Be on the lookout for new creations with some sparkle.  It was an exciting few days as a good friend served as our personal Gem Show guide, thanks Carol!

New Additions, Spring and Summer 2009

Kapa Beads


The Kapa Bead is a new addition to the Kapa line within the Sonny Ching Collection.  We’ve paired leather with silver for a unisex and everyday look that is classy and stylish.   These silver barrel beads are detailed in timeless Kapa patterns that carry symbolism and meaning.   Any of the three distinctive designs (Ka Pilina, Hoʻokō and Niho Mano) can serve as gifts for any special occasions, achievements, or just as a charming thought.


Kamapuaa Collection

Kamapuaʻa has been added as another uniquely symbolic piece to the family of gods and demigod in the Ke Kini Akua line within the Sonny Ching Collection.  The famous “Pig God” is known for guardianship of his people and is immortalized by his cape and tusk in charms and pendants.  This talented and animated character has special powers of protection and strength.  In honor of Kamapuaʻa these pieces represent the spirit that gives one talent and strength.



The Ulu (breadfruit) is the Hawaiian symbol of Life and embodiment of Hawaiian Gods.   This beautiful plant is portrayed in silver as a pendant, cuff and earrings.  Aesthetically, the Ulu Pendant will hang from a black cord, and embrace any neckline.  The Ulu Lace Cuff has delicate filigree, and solid silver leaves with the Ulu fruit nestled amongst them. The Ulu Earrings compliment and complete the set

Kuleana Charm Collection


Comprised of the Mauka and Makai line of charms these pieces simply remind us to preserve and protect our culture and the beautiful things that surround us.
