Risshun, which falls in early February, is the first day of spring in the traditional Japanese calendar. According to the East Calendar used since ancient times, Risshun marks the beginning of spring and the year. We usually say ‟Spring breeze melts the ice” to express the early feeling of spring like these days. If we can perceive delicately such transition, we will discover a new unordinary world while having a good feeling about the future. Although time passes by so fast in our ordinary life. /o-jewel

Sign of Spring
PLANTS collection by makiami
makiami PLANTS collection is a group of jewellery which is inspired by common plants in Scandinavian, such as wildflowers in country side or archipelago. Some of them are modeled after nostalgic forms from old botanical illustrations of plants.
In this exhibition “Sign of Spring” at O-Jewel, we exhibit items that are suitable for this season from our PLANTS collection.
Such as sprouts coming out in between snow, swelling blossom buds etc…
We hope that we can bring a sign of spring to you from Sweden.

Makiami Plants Collection 東京にて初お披露目です。

立春。
日本の旧暦においては1年の始まりです。
今くらいの時期を、“東風凍を解く”という言葉で表現します。
日々慌ただしく過ぎてゆく中で、
ふとした季節の移り変わりに気づく瞬間、なにか予感のようなもの、
そんなことを大切に細やかに生きていけたら
また違う風景があなたの目の前に広がり始めるかもしれません。/ O-Jewel

Sign of Spring
PLANTS Collection by makiami
makiami PLANTS collectionは、北欧の田舎や諸島に咲く野草、
古い植物図鑑にある草花の形の印象の断片からフォルムを集めたジュエリーシリーズです。
氷も薄くなり、かすかに春を感じはじめるこの季節。
雪の下からちらりと顔を出す芽や、枝に膨らむ蕾のように春を予感させるアイテムを中心に展示します。
スウェーデンから氷を溶かす春の風をお届けします。
