Feel "different" and know "yourself"
Collaborative earrings with Kasuko Nishibayashi, a contemporary jewelry artist active in Germany.
It may be a hassle, but let's get involved with people a little more.
The deformed blue-gray pearls from Uwajima are all different and unique.
Because the world is a group of strange people
By crossing, we can feel "different" and know "self".
Kosa is a contemporary jewelery artist based in Germany, designed by Kazuko Nishibayashi . A collaborative collection of "MENTOSEN" and Kazuko Nishibayashi.
There are three shapes for this earring.
The square is the outside of the piercing,
The circle is the notch inside the piercing,
And when you put the triangle on your ear, the weight of the pearl makes the outside the apex of the triangle.
Pearl just under the ear
Enjoy the texture of metal
The faint matting on the surface intersects slightly.
By using CNC cutting technology, it feels neatly polished from the board.
The thick part of the side and the back are polished cleanly.
A little deformed, blue-gray pearls from Uwajima
Akoya pearls cultivated in the sea of Uwajima, Doi Pearl's farm.
Some of them couldn't be perfectly round.
However, the blue-gray color and shine are really beautiful.
For mass production, beads that are not in circulation because they are not perfect circles.
Even a little deformation is clean enough.
Each pearl has a slightly different shape. This pearl is a by-product of making round pearls, and the number is limited because it is a finished product.When the beads of this term are over, they will be restocked in the next year, some time later.
