The KANOE jewelry brand takes inspiration from the forms of nature as it explores how to create organic expression from inorganic metal. The artists perform the whole process from design to production, and pour all their experience and sensibility into their jewelry. Three-dimensional forms are cut out of individual thin plates, and each is meticulously created by hand, belying their effortless appearance. Delicate expression and mattified gentle colors transform gradually over time like a plant growing. These jewelry pieces created with a fine, hand-made sensibility slowly internalize time as they adorn your daily life with grace and beauty. KANOE http://www.kanoe-jewelry.jp
