“Collect a hundred saga seeds and they will bring you happiness.”
Love Seed collection takes inspiration from nature. Each piece is a container, with pierced out patterns illustrating foliage. From this foliage, shadows are cast. From this foliage, a little heart peeks.
The little heart is a saga seed. Rather than set, drilled or glued onto the container, the seed moves freely so that the wearer can observe its natural qualities. Its heart-like shape is, at times playful, at times alluring, a mirror of the wearer’s very own heart.
“When you choose your partner, his religion, nationality, or wealth does not matter; be with someone who lets you shine, then he is a man worth being with.”- Toshiyuki Mitsuyasu
Shine is characterised by two hearts. Each symbolizing a person. Each bold and unique from the other. Together though, they realize something brighter than if they were apart. On the Shine necklace, the two hearts come together to complete the clasp (and pendant) as a star.
Could it be that what gives us light, hides what truly shines?
Around us, the city lights dazzle. Above us, nary a star in sight.
Away from the city and her veil, we enter a different kind of light.
Here, in complete darkness, glitter fills the sky. We are tucked under a blanket of stars, captivated and enraptured all at once.
This collection tells of stars and their light. Shooting stars, stardust, and galaxies are portrayed with pave set white topaz; constellations are drawn with chains, each link representing stars both bright and veiled.
At opposite ends of a line lies the two pieces that complete The Lovers’ puzzle. The two comes together to form a heart-shaped pendant, by way of an intricate clasp system (where one piece wraps around the other in a orbit of embraces). As is often the case, finding the groove where the two pieces connect comfortably takes some time, practice and familiarity.
