Description

Why are the eyes blank?

The daruma (だるま) is a traditional, handmade Japanese doll full of centuries-old symbolism associated with perseverance and never giving up. Sold with two blank eyes, the first eye is drawn in when a goal is set, and the second eye is drawn in when the goal is achieved.

With a permanent ink pen, draw directly on this pin to set your goal and wear it as a reminder of what you want to achieve. Once you’ve succeeded in meeting your goal and the second eye is filled in, you can continue to wear the pin with pride!

Hello, everyone! My name is Geri Coady—I’m an illustrator and designer with a passion for Japanese travel, food, and culture. Seven years ago I worked as an art director in a Canadian advertising agency, but for the past six years I’ve been working as a freelance illustrator in Nottingham, England, with clients located around the globe.

My other interests include photography, coffee culture, and running. I study Japanese daily to work toward my goal of being fluent. In February of 2017, I appeared in the TV Tokyo program 「世界!ニッポン行きたい人応援団」also known as “Who Wants to Come to Japan?” in English. You can read more about my experience filming for Japanese TV on my blog post.
