Yoka Gold Earrings


This item is currently out of stock

A one-of-a-kind and very precious piece of 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 ceramic charm features happy little summer cherry blossoms ('Yoka' is a Japanese term for these), are 24k gold-plated, and the chains are 14k gold-filled.

The chains measure approx. 25mm long, and the pendants are approx. 15mm x 15mm.

Gift wrapped in tissue paper
