I really like these for displaying rings!
noa noa is where I dream, imagine, have fun and totally free myself.
Since I was a child, I have always been creative because it makes me feel alive. It gives my sould wings. Though, there was a time when I concealed my passion for arts for quite a long time.
After graduating my high school in Canada, I came back to Japan and entered a university in Tokyo to major political science, hoping that it would pave the way to a good career in the future.
However, studying politics never filled me with joy, but a feeling that something was missing in my life. The feeling became stronger and stronger, especially after the great earthquake on 11th March, 2011.
On the very same day after a year, I joined a visual arts exhibiton held in my home town. I exhibited some of my acrylic paintings and handmade jewelry I made, just for fun. Making jewelry was one of my hobbies and I did not expect much from it at that moment.
Despite of my expectation, I was amazed that I sold most of them at the exhibition. I began to listen to my inner voice which I had ignored for too long. Then, I finally gave myself a go to do what I l oved and it was when "noa noa" was born.
"noa noa" was named after the travelogue written by Paul Gauguin, my favourite artist. It means "What a pleasant smell!" in Tahitian. The brand name represents my background of visual arts ( I graduated high school with International Baccalaureate Diploma in visual arts, Higher Level) and my hope that my customers wear jewelry just like their favourite fragrance; it's barely there but you feel good and pretty wearing them. That is why I make minimalist jewelry that you can wear daily.
I feel blessed everyday doing what I love for living. It is such a great feeling to know that some beautiful women are wearing my jewelry somewhere in the US, Australia, Sweden, Spain, Hong Kong, Canada and many other places around the world! I always wish I could thank you in person.
I couldn't be where I am now without support from my customers, my friends, and my family. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
