The Life of a Shard: Beauty from Brokenness

Nozomi (translated 'hope' in Japanese), is a social enterprise employing women from Ishinomaki, Japan who were adversely affected by the 2011 tsunami.  Our staff are artisans who are creating one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry using broken pottery left in the wake of the tsunami. 

 We are thrilled with this new one minute video commercial that briefly shows the steps of making beauty from brokenness. (Thanks Garrett Inouye!).  Please help us share the Nozomi story by sharing this video! See more of our recent videos and read the latest here on our blog.
