“Temari Necklace My grandma' s hobby was making "Temari", which is using lots of different coloured thread wrapped tightly to make a large ball. There are so many different pattern and they are so beautiful!! Next time I go back to Japan, I might bring some back and make a necklace with them. I am sure that would make my grandma so happy. Recently I tried making a "Temari " style necklace using rubber cord instead of traditional thread. The result was so soft and light. I really enjoy wearing it. I hope you will enjoy wearing it too.”

 

Originally a graphic designer, Mika developed her jewellery making skills working with silver. She started designing pieces for her mum but, over time, her mum found heavier weight jewellery less comfortable to wear and some of the clasps and closures difficult to maneuver. Hence the idea of working with softer materials was birthed and Mika started to create with soft non-toxic sponge rubber which is incredibly lightweight. She also included magnetic clasps making the pieces easier to put on and take off. Mika then started to wear her own designs too and was constantly complimented on her pieces and asked if she would sell them. And now she does!

Her designs pair well with minimal or maximal styles and there is not a design I have seen from her yet that I haven’t loved.
