Don’t miss your very last chance to own artisanal pieces by seven of Japan’s most exciting designers; all exclusive to Sway Gallery London in the UK.
The concept for ARAWA’s jewellery is inspired by the kanji 顕, from the creator’s name. It has many meanings – noble, outstanding or distinguished, bright decoration. Often likened to talismans, worn to protect and charm, their pieces feature cherry blossom to embody the wearer’s divine beauty and grace, and create a spiritual connection with Japan.
Craftsman Tomoaki Yamazaki started his atelier GINNEZU to showcase the mysterious allure of silver, once more popular than gold in Japan. An accomplished silversmith, his signature mill grain engraving embodies Japan’s four seasons and the beauty of nature.
Drawn to uneven colours, scenes and motifs found in the natural world, Lobashu’s jewellery are “tools to convey feelings” that are otherwise difficult to express. For the artist’s hydrangea series, each piece begins as a plain, white sheet of paper, before its cut, folded, stacked and patterned by hand to create delicate but vivid, one-of-a-kind designs.
KARUPI BY NISSHODO
Original accessory brand, karupi, combines artisanal paper techniques dating over 40 years with the latest technology in paper printing, die cutting, foil stamping and leather processing. Using naturally derived materials and sustainable manufacturing methods, the results are lightweight but durable and luxurious Japanese-style accessories.
PETIT BLEU TOKYO
With loose, ribbon-like curves and distorted pearls and stones, Petit Bleu Tokyo’s jewellery aims to mimic the timeless, free dancing of the sky’s “flying jewel” – the blue, iridescent kingfisher.
SHIGARAKI BY FORTUNAL
Named after the English translation for the Japanese kanji 幸運koūn (“fortune, good luck”) and 自然体 shizentai (“natural body or posture, being oneself”), Fortunal create earthy Shigaraki accessories that bring out our natural beauty.
VIVA*VIVA JEWEL STUDIO
Each of viva*viva’s brass accessories is drawn and cut freehand, ensuring that every design has completely unique “expressions”. Light and comfortable to wear, their jewellery is based on the idea of kawaii (cuteness) and is crafted to make the wearer feel warm and happy.
