For those who live life single-heartedly
Jewelry by artists and craftspeople from Japan
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 made by Shinko Studio is 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.

The work of Japanese goldsmiths as the roots of Shinko Studio jewelry
Hence, Japanese jewelry is characterized by a background, a sensibility, and skills that make is something other than simply an imitation of European jewelry.
After discovering this, I started to make pieces for an original jewelry collection. These now form the base of the Shinko Studio jewelry collection.
World conditions change at a dizzying pace, swallowing people up in trends.
But people still need to live.
As I lived my life each day, I met people who were patiently putting up with things, living single-heartedly.
And I realized that I’d like to make jewelry for these kinds of people!
If the power of art is added to craftsmanship, it becomes possible to create the kind of jewelry that becomes a life companion.
And while it may be modest, this kind of jewelry might also be able to give people courage.
And now I am making jewelry.
Life is not only happy moments.
This is exactly why we need jewelry.
Something that will support our spirits in the times when life gets hard.
I want my jewelry to give the people who wear it that little bit of extra energy.
It is with this hope in mind that Shinko Studio makes jewelry.
