My Story, My Journey
I started hand-making accessories and jewelry in 2005 as a student in Tokyo’s (武蔵野美術大学 (Musashino Art University). In the early days, most pieces were custom designed for friends and family.
While living in Vancouver, Canada, my first real project became a reality thanks to a conversation
with Shelley Klassen – a prolific Vancouver fashion designer, who would become a dear friend, boss, and mentor to me.
Shelley asked me to design jewelry for one of her fashion shows. I was very excited about the challenge, and poured my heart into creating pieces for the show. The production was a tremendous success, and I received heaps of valuable feedback. A number of people asked about the jewelry, and this provided an opportunity to actually sell my work. From that point, I continued creating and selling jewelry at Shelley’s Blushing Boutique.
I’ll always be grateful to Shelley and Blushing Boutique for providing this opportunity while I was living in Canada – thank you!
