Ai Necklace

Ai Necklace

Gracefully fashionable, each Ai Necklace contains vibrant glass bead links and silver bead accents. Silver figaro style chain with lobster clasp closure. Approximately 28" in length. 

"Ai" means love in Japanese. One of the amazing things that has happened in Ishinomaki since the 2011 disaster is the great amount of love that has been mutually poured out between volunteers from around the world and the beautiful people of Ishinomaki. This necklace name is a great reminder of the special bonds that exist between so many who continue to be a part of the ongoing work of restoration.

Anniversary Collection

Anniversary Collection

This year's Anniversary Necklaces are simply beautiful! Stunning pottery pieces have been hand-picked to nestle in rectangular bezels. These are perfect to layer with your favorites or to showcase on their own.

One of Nozomi's core values is giving back. Typhoon Hagibis, the strongest typhoon to hit Japan in 60 years, caused flooding and landslides across Japan in mid-October. This story is intricately tied with Nozomi's - in fact, the morning of this collection's release, a woman donated some pottery to Nozomi which had been broken by the typhoon. A portion of the Anniversary Collection's sales will be donated to disaster relief. 

Chains: 15.5" with a 2.5" extender, 24K gold or .999 sterling silver plated. Wide bezel: 32.8mm x 11.6mm 7g. Slim bezel: 32mm x 6.1mm 4g. Both are 24k gold or .999 sterling silver plated; nickel-free. 

Anniversary Tassel Necklace

Anniversary Tassel Necklace

Our limited Nozomi's Tassel Necklace is making a splash! The classic Y-shape adds length and femininity to your outfit, and is perfect for layering. Each necklace of course features a piece of beautiful pottery expertly ground to perfection in an oval frame.

Chain length: 25" with 2" adjuster. Tassels are 2"-3." Chain materials: 24K gold or .999 sterling silver plated. 

Pendant bezel: 24K gold- or sterling silver-plated, 31 x 5mm (about 1.2" x 0.2")

Aoi Bookmark

Cambodian Pottery Collection

Cambodian Pottery Collection

We made this limited collection in a variety of styles using some pottery from Cambodia. A portion of this collection's sales will be donated to a group in Cambodia that is working to rescue women and young girls from sex trafficking. Often, girls/women in their area have two viable employment options: sweatshops and the sex industry. 

Our partner group recently opened a safe house for survivors, and together we are exploring different employment and job-skill training opportunities. We are so excited about this partnership and the way that your purchases spread hope around the world!  Read our recent blog here

Each piece of jewelry we make at Nozomi Project is truly one-of-a-kind. It's a beautiful analogy for each woman - Nozomi staff, Cambodian trafficking survivor, and customers around the world. We are all inextricably connected and yet uniquely individual. What a beautiful paradox! 

View each product's description for details on material, weight, and size. 

Change things up! You can order our 2mm sterling silver collar or 4mm sterling silver collar (sold separately) to easily swap out the leather cord of your Juli Wire-Wrap Necklace!
Please note: This only works with Juli Wire-Wrap Necklace pendants.

Daiki Keychain

Daiki Silver Keychain

A striking unisex silver framed keychain will delight even the most difficult person on your shopping list. These one-of-a kind keychains are elegant and simple, serving as a daily reminder of the Nozomi message of hope and resilience.

Our signature keychain is named after one of our favorite boys in the world.

His mom is one of our grinding artisans at Nozomi Project, and her resilience in light of many challenges over the years serves as a beautiful example to all of us.
