Musubi Head Jewelry by Asuka Saito This head jewelry is created by arranging Japanese traditional techniques, Tsumami-zaiku and Mizuhiki-zaiku with Swarovski crystal. The inspiration of wedding cakes and beautiful decorative cakes bring up the idea of Mizuhiki that plays an important role in Japanese culture as a symbol of affection, warmth, and togetherness.

Raindrops Pendant by Asuka Saito These raindrops pendants are inspired by the quote, "Maybe raindrops are the bravest thing created by God. Want to know why? It is because they are never afraid of falling." These pendants bring people who live hard or work hard in each society to encourage in various situations. They can be worn individually or collectively on the chain, with any color combination. A shape of raindrops and slide set enhance crystal fancy stones which are designed with precise machine-cut facet patterns that produce the signature Swarovski sparkle.
