nam Jewelry is handmade by Nami Maeda in Tokyo. After her career in fashion design in Milan and Tokyo, she realized that she wanted to make some treasures for people and learned traditional engraving. She creates jewelry that gives warm atmosphere by combining traditional Japanese tools "Tagane" with her own techniques inspired by lace and textiles.
All collections are made in 18K gold by an original alchemy given to each color. The two colors, yellow and rose, are “Luna Gold” inspired by the pale blue moon and “Sole Gold” like sun orange.
When encountering a pure stone with identity, nam’s primitive and beautiful jewelry are created by working her curiosity, the experience she cultivated, and the accidental power of nature. Each piece has an organic form and the texture expresses shades. It is a praise of unfinished beauty that is not too sophisticated and yet the seemingly rough but delicate design evokes a poetic sensation.
She wishes to bring her talisman jewelry to women around the world that feels like own pleasure.
Jewelry that fulfills ourselves
Something that makes women more attractive and beautiful
Something that stands beside our internal selves
Gives healing, becomes a medium for communication
And turns out to be an unknown expression of ourselves"
