Strongly inspired by geometric and natural forms, Nobuko’s approach is truly “wabi-sabi”, she explores a combination of geometry and nature to create something unique from these apparent opposites. This contemporary jewellery collection is not only of singular pieces but Nobuko also produces and sells small batches which allows for a broad price range.
Materials and process
Nobuko favours the use of gemstones combined with gold and silver. Wax casting and wax carving, together with highly skilled traditional fabrication methods.
Nobuko graduated from School of Jewellery, Birmingham. From her workshop in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter, Nobuko works to commission, supplies UK galleries and exhibits at selected exhibitions and selling fairs throughout the year. Her workshop is open to visit by appointment.
