I live in South Bend, Indiana. I was born in Tokyo. I am interested in making Mizuhiki, beaded jewelry, knotting, crocheting and knitting. I always look for "east meets west" or "the point of past meets present" kind of things. I love traditional theme as well as modern style.
I have lived in the US for almost half of my life. Here, I discovered "fusion" is my style. My background is a bit odd from the other Etsyians -- I am an engineer. I often look things in engineering or mathematical point of view. I found out that beading and knotting are quite topological (Topology:area of mathematics, development of concept from geometry and set theory) However, our ancient people understood "topology" in beading and knotting empirically with no modern mathematical background. I am thrilled and amazed their works.
Enjoy my store!
