Our new Nozomi magnets are the perfect gift, souvenir, or "just because!" purchase. Priced affordably, these heavy-duty magnets are a wonderful way to pass on hope --- to yourself or someone else. Our quirky and beautiful magnets are made from one-of-a-kind pieces of pottery which have been gathered after the 2011 tsunami and/or donated to our Ishinomaki workshop from around the city. Our grinders have taken care of the rough edges, while leaving a beautiful organic feel to each piece. Some of our magnets have the Japanese kanji for "hope" beautifully inscribed with calligraphy by one of our staff. Each magnet purchase is packaged in a beautiful felt Nozomi bag. Sold in sets of one, two, or three magnets. $8 and $10.
This delicate sterling silver or gold-filled link chain holds a shaped pottery pendant. We now have some wonderful different size options, including some very petite pendants that have been handmade with much care. Spring ring clasp. 18”L.
Rumi is named after the sister-in-law of one of our staff, Tomoko. Rumi is one of the unsung heroines of the 2011 tsunami. After the earthquake, she wanted to get home quickly from her part-time job to be with her three year old son and husband. But she offered to take her coworker home first to her co-workers family. She almost made it home -- within two blocks -- when the tsunami took her life. Her son is now being raised by his father and grandmother, Reiko.
