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.
Beautiful - fun - whimsical. Earring sets carefully shaped and hung on silver-filled or gold-filled ear wires.
※You don't need pierced ears to have beautiful earrings! We can change them into screwback earrings. Please write a memo on checkout.
These earrings are named after the beautiful daughter of one of our staff. Sara's family was one of the first that our team met after the 2011 disaster. She and her brother were bright spots in the middle of chaos; they were featured in a video made by Healing Hands that helped many from around the world understand the tragedy as it unfolded.
Inspired by the gift of hope, this one-of-a-kind pendant provides a beautiful backdrop for a sterling silver cross (0.75”x 0.5”). Each necklace also includes an inspirational etched sterling silver hope charm which delicately hangs next to the pendant. Sterling silver snake chain, lobster clasp closure. 16, 18, 20" L. If you would like a different length than the length that is listed for a particular Kumiko necklace, please write your choice (16, 18, or 20") in the comment line and we will try our best to send you the length of your request.
Kumiko is named after the mother of Yuko S., our manager and new product designer. Kumiko's name means "beautiful," and we love seeing the beauty of both of these women. The bonds of love run deep for this mother-daughter pair.
