I aim to harmonise my Japanese origins with life in UK. I combine Japanese minimalism with that of European jewellery making techniques, from this I have developed my style. I am particularly concerned with a high level of finish and durability in my jewellery, and am continually trying to perfect the technical aspects of my work.

My inspiration derives mainly from nature, which I interpret and transform into sculptural forms using precious and non-precious materials. In ‘BAMBOO’ and ‘BRANCH’ the metal is formed to echo the growth patterns and strength that is present in nature. ‘SARA SARA’ is a Japanese expression to describe water flowing in a river or how the tip of the calligraphy brush moves. Which also remind me of the rhythm in the ocean as ‘Wave’. And also my latest collection ‘CALLIGRAPHY’ shows the calligraphic inspiration.
