While Japan boasts a beautiful, flowing syllabary called hiragana. Many Japanese people don’t seem to be aware of its charm and appear negative about using Japanese characters in logos and advertising. The hiragana jewelry series was created in hope of conveying the beauty of Japanese hiragana to people both in Japan and abroad. Calligraphy written by the designer (who is also a calligrapher) is turned into jewelry to express the beautiful curves of the hiragana characters particular to Japan. Each piece is painstakingly designed so it can be read in spite of its irregular form. A total of 50 variations are available, including “thank you” and “dream”. The jewelry is made of gold and silver, which is hand polished by an experienced professional to produce its beautiful forms. Hiragana is a series of innovative jewelry that makes us rediscover the greatness of Japan’s traditional characters.
