Playing and practicing with paper has always fascinated Mizuki to find creative inspiration in a simple yet delicate design, which may come from a profound influence of her home country of Japan. Its presence and transformation around us always captivates and motivates her in her making.
The making process is a significant role in Mizuki’s creativity. Once a piece is made or during its process of making, it feeds her inspiration to get and grow new ideas for the next project.
In Mizuki’s collection of jewellery, paper-thin porcelain or enamelled copper elements are set on an oxidised silver wire structure to sit like a drawing on the body. Mark-making and drawings are also important processes in her jewellery making. She examines the balance in space involving light and shadow, working with these delicate paper-thin elements and lines to weave a narrative into her jewellery.
