Inspiration for my designs comes from many different sources and one of them is what’s in the stores and museums. This year, many companies like Johnny Was, Chico’s, Anthropologie and others are selling kimono-inspired clothing. At the V&A Museum in London, Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk exhibit is opening soon. There are some beautiful photos on their website with detailed descriptions. I have always loved Japanese culture; it was my plan to incorporate a bit of Japan into my designs someday. That’s how Sayuri Necklace and Earrings came about.
Sayuri Necklace has a little piece of everything I love about Japan. The finished pendant features my interpretation of traditional architecture, surrounded by serene gardens and pools and it hangs from a flat strap reminiscent of obi ties. This pendant was a joy to bead. I am going to skip buying kimono inspired clothing, instead I will wear Sayuri necklace with outfits I already have.
The pendant features pyramid beads, Czech flower beads, Amos beads, Tila beads, Japanese seed beads and other beads.
