At this moment, let us immerse ourselves in the world of nature
Pick a flower for hand-made jewelry
Write poems for ordinary days


Speaking of the word "jewelry", what often pop up in our mind are those dazzling jewelry made of precious metals. But do you know that fresh plants can also be used as raw materials for jewelry making?

Inspired by "the lost wedding ring appeared on a potato twenty years later", a Belgian jewelry artist Hilde De Decker built a greenhouse on his own to establish a connection between the grown fruit, vegetables and jewelry, creating natural jewelry that co-grow with plants.

Japanese jewelry artist Shinji Nakaba, who is famous for pearl-carving, wears brooches or rings which are made from flowers that he encounters during his daily walks. One encounter, one chance. That’s how he embellishes the chest and between the fingers with the ordinary beauty of daily life and the changes of the four seasons.


> IKEBANA ring (steel) by Shinji Nakaba

The new IKEBANA ring is complete! I bring it with me for a walk in the forest right away and found that the ground was covered with red flowers. Wow, camellias! I couldn't help picking them up and putting them in my pocket, wearing my IKEBANA ring for a walk. My heart is full of joyfulness and something so energetic filled my chest. 

——Shinji Nakaba
