What can happen when women work together

As we approach celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Nozomi Project this month, we want to highlight the skill and artistry that our Nozomi team has developed. We couldn't be more proud of how this team of women have worked hard to create some of the finest pieces of pottery jewelry in the world. 

The heart of our Nozomi workshop is the grinding room.  This is where the pottery is cut, ground rough, then finely ground to perfection. Our team of seven are creative and seek to make the most beautiful items possible. 

Our Sara hook earrings have remained our best-selling collection. We've made over 7000 earrings! And they just get better and better. This morning we had a new set of earrings ready to go online, and look at these beauties! It's the first time in my memory that we have seen heart-shaped earrings (not in a frame). The skill! the beauty! This month we celebrate the craftsmanship that can happen when women work together. (Get them while they are still here!) 



White Day - Day for Reciprocating

Have you ever heard of White Day?  It's a holiday celebrated in Japan and it's all about reciprocating the gifts you received on Valentine's Day.  Isn't that fun?

Unlike the western notion of February 14, in Japan primarily women give chocolate gifts to men.  So March 14 is the day for returning the favor.  On White day, men buy a gift for the women who gave them chocolate.  Originally this was some kind of marshmallow treat, or white chocolate (hence the name "White Day"), but now anything goes.

Nozomi Project is honoring this day of giving by marking down four of our favorite lines of jewelry!  So Guys, here is your chance to follow the Japanese custom of White Day and enjoy purchasing beautiful gifts for the women in your life!  Women, you can take advantage of White Day as well by using this campaign as a chance to find great gifts for others and yourself.  White Day gives one more great reason to love Beauty from Brokenness.
