[ Jewelry Artisan ]

“There’s this joy in finishing a piece of jewelry.”

At Nozomi, I work as a jewelry artisan. I figure out the layout for each piece and put it together. The pottery piece is the life of a Nozomi product. Everyone’s hands are part of its making. I make that the center piece and pick out the beads that go well with it. There’s this joy in finishing a piece of jewelry. When you see it in front of you, you have a realization that what you’ve made can really be an artisanal product. Then there’s the joy when someone buys that piece you made. It’s an amazing thing. We send our jewelry all over the world and our customers in turn send us a lot of joy back.
