I am making a small drop-shaped pendant in the blessing of a warm winter in Yakushima Island.
Lovely colors of winter flowers, raindrops on the spiderweb, and the brilliance of a diamond and yellow gold.
Sazanka-flower bloomed in the garden that she came to last month.
I really love this yellow flower. Tsuwabuki-flowers always inspire me.
I think I may be making jewelry to be closer to the natural mysticism blowing through the air.
Little by little, I gave a curve to the gold bar which thinned out in the fire.
The gold is small and pretty hard.
Put fire and bend, and put fire again. I did the same kind of thing many times.
This is a classic way of jewelry-making passed down from old times.
I prefer using the old tools that my old friend gave me because I feel like the distance between my hand and the objects is shorter.
The times go slowly here in Yakushima, but I still love something that is being lost gradually.
Travel Yakushima, make wedding rings and..
