G.A.T.U.M.I. Jewelry and Accessories is run by a devoted fan of the feline species and insane Anime fangirl/ otaku! ;D

This shop was originally launched for the purpose of creating Hairfalls, but eventually I was drawn into the magical world of jewelry making by my dad, also a self-taught professional jewelry maker, who showed me the basics of this art, which I love so dearly! <3

It's always a pleasure to meet other fans from around the world and I hope you will find something you like among my creations.

The inspiration behind it all comes mainly from Anime (esp. addicted to the magical girl genre, shonen), Games (mainly RPGs), Japanese Culture, Cyberpunk, Asian fashion trends, heavily influenced by the Gyaru…

It's always a pleasure to meet other fans from around the world and I hope you will find something you like among my creations.

The inspiration behind it all comes mainly from Anime (esp. addicted to the magical girl genre, shonen), Games (mainly RPGs), Japanese Culture, Cyberpunk, Asian fashion trends, heavily influenced by the Gyaru movement, Fairy Kei and of course Japanese and Korean pop-idols.

Fashion never ceases to amaze me and hence the almighty power of accessorizing; a unique piece can literally transform an outfit in seconds... and I believe that's priceless.

In this context, I like to incorporate my all-time favorite fandom elements (Game characters, Anime heroines, etc..) in my creations, combining contrasting materials and techniques.

Most of my jewelry pieces are one of a kind (stated as OOAK in the item description), and often collectible, since I love "upcycling" authentic and rare and vintage anime/game figures (release date is always stated when available).

in addition to giving each piece a unique character, I always keep two things in mind when creating jewelry; aesthetics and the "wearability" factor, i.e. the functional aspects of a jewelry piece (comfort, durability etc..).

As far as techniques are concerned, you'll probably realise that beading is my passion. I regard my bead collection as my color "palette"... One can never have enough shades of PINK! xD

All materials are subject to thorough quality control and hence, I do all the beadwork by hand.

Take a look into my store and feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I'm here to answer them! ^^
