Contemporary Jewelry Artist
Playing and practicing with paper has always fascinated Mizuki to find creative inspiration in a simple yet delicate design, which may come from a profound influence of her home country of Japan. Its presence and transformation around us always captivates and motivates her in her making.
In Mizuki’s collection of jewellery, paper-thin porcelain or enamelled copper elements are set on a oxidised silver wire structure to sit like a drawing on the body. Mark-making and drawings are also important processes in her jewellery making. She examines the balance in space involving light and shadow, working with these delicate paper-thin elements and lines to weave a narrative into her jewellery.
Born in lbaraki, Japan, Mizuki graduated from Akita Municipal Junior College of Arts and Crafts in Visual Design. After that, she became interest ed in making jewellery, to seek a challenge in a totally different environment, and chose to study BA (Hons) Jewellery Design at Hereford College of Arts where she graduated with a first class in 2014 . She continues her making in her small workshop in Malvern and exhibit s all over the UK.
