``Plants have their own beauty in every process.
It starts with the soft color of the new buds, then the flowers wither and the leaves wither.
Even so, I feel a trace of dignified vitality. ”

I imagined the waving petals of a flower when it blooms and its scent.
Blossom collection,
Inspired by the beautiful and humorous shape of the pod that remains after fulfilling its role of protecting the species.
This exhibition focuses on the Seedpod collection, each piece created by hand.
Introducing unique jewelry

.

Each piece is cut and shaped by hand from a board.
Therefore, this is a rare opportunity to see original jewelry in Japan, where no two pieces are the same.

On the first day, we will prepare sweets and drinks with plant motifs inspired by this work.
We'll be expecting you. Please take this opportunity to take a look.
*During this period, there will be no artist in the gallery.
