For those who live life single-heartedly
Design, crafts and Contemporary Jewelry from Tokyo
When we think of jewelry, we tend to think of something gorgeous.
However, the jewelry that we make must be jewelry for people who live life single-heartedly, for all it is worth.
So the jewelry created by Shinko Studio may be simple and lacks this kind of gorgeousness.
But sometimes we just go with the flow.
Without getting caught up in the established ideas of the past.
And when the time comes, we run at full speed.
Always mindful of the considerate way of seeing things that is intrinsic to human nature.
Shinko Studio CEO Akiko Yonei
