Shine On! Kids - Silver Charm
A portion of proceeds will be donated to the foundation with each piece sold.
Benefiting the Shine On! Kids non-profit organization, these beautiful sterling silver charms represent the hope of children fighting cancer and other serious illnesses. Show your support for these children, and send them a little luck by wearing Shine On! Kids charms.
About the Charms
Handmade by master artisans, Shinko Studio has transformed the Shine On! Kids stars logo into a sterling silver representation of all the hope we have for our children.
Each of the charms is hand-engraved by craftsmen who utilize a centuries-old metalworking technique called wabori. Once used to decorate the swords of Japanese samurai, wabori engraving requires craftsmen to make their own tools to engrave designs into the silver.
The Shine On! Kids smile is engraved into one side of the charm, while on the other is a message to children fighting cancer to “shine on!” We hope you will join Shinko Studio and Shine On! Kids in supporting these children and their families in their fight for a brighter future.
We hope you will also consider the Shine On! Kids Ninja Silk Braided Bracelet with a “Shine On!” sterling silver clasp.

Childhood cancer is the number one cause of death for children in Japan after accidents. A child is diagnosed with cancer in Japan about once every 3-4 hours each day. While the prognosis for many childhood cancers has improved significantly, the treatment process is still long and grueling. Children undergoing treatment for cancer in Japan are generally hospitalized for quite a long time – 6 months to one year or more. This puts an incredible burden on the patients and on the family supporting them.
