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.
Designed with a delicate gold cable chain and tassels and an ornate framed pendant with detailing on the reverse. The chain and pendant bezel are .999 sterling silver plated, the charm is crafted from a fragment of china featuring the pretty ‘yuri’ or lily flower, a symbol of devotion in Japanese.
Goes with everything from an everyday t-shirt to your favourite evening dress.
Chain length adjustable between approx. 23 to 27 inches, plus the 1 inch charm and tassels with a 2 to 3 inch drop.
Presented in a velvet pouch.
