Satomi Kawakita makes beautiful, amazing, delicate jewelry.
Born and raised in Japan, she studied wood, metal, clay, and textile arts in Kyoto; then worked as a glass-blower. Later, she moved to the U.S. to study jewelry making in New York City.
She makes necklaces and earrings, but her rings are by far my favorites. Each ring looks so beautifully and individually crafted.
Capture the Castle blog features an interview with Ms. Kawakita and lots more pictures.
This one is my favorite:
