Award winning designer Maiko Nagayama was born in Tokyo and consequently inspired by human behaviour in 24 hours frantic environment.
She developed her passion for design and art making from a very young age, peeling off wallpaper, creating shapes in her bedroom and sitting next to her mother drawing quietly on her mother's diary. She also observed her father's architecture works and interaction with inanimate objects.
Maiko’s British sojourn since 1999 broadened her mind and she developed her own vocabulary of futuristic unique forms, essentially abstract but evocative of cosmic, aquatic or scientific world.
After graduating BA Jewellery design in Central Saint Martins in 2006, she became a gemmologist graduating in GIA London.
Intensely coloured precious stones which she carefully chose such as blue and green blazing black opals, deep ocean sapphires, hand-carved jet and sky-like aquamarines drop colour onto sensual and radical forms.
Maiko’s unconventional fine jewellery draws out the beauty of your own identity.
