Sometsuke Earrings

£45

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 stunning and unique pieces of jewellery.

The charms on these earrings are crafted from ‘sometsuke’ blue and white china, the chains are sterling silver, the triangle charms are .999 fine silver-plated, the hooks are sterling-silver filled. Goes with everything from an everyday t-shirt to your favourite evening dress.

Presented in a velvet pouch.
