Haru Silver Necklace


An absolutely one-of-a-kind piece of precious jewellery, created by the Nozomi Project, Japan.

‘Nozomi’ means 'hope' in Japanese. Founded in the wake of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the Nozomi Project is a social enterprise based in Ishinomaki which employs and trains local people in the craft of jewellery making.

Each piece embraces the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi: there is beauty to be found in the broken. Pottery smashed in the earthquake is given a new lease of life, transformed by the artisans into charms for stunning and unique pieces of jewellery.

Designed in the classic drop-pendant style, the chain is sterling silver. The charm is crafted from a fragment of abstract floral-patterned china and .999 fine silver-plated. Goes with everything from an everyday t-shirt to your favourite party dress.

Haru chikashi is an idiom often used in Japanese poetry to mean “spring will come soon”.

Chain length approx. 18 inches plus the charm.

Presented In a velvet pouch
