Materials Info:
Nickel free sterling silver is used for earring posts, ear nuts, hooks, hoops, jump rings & chains.
We use quality 14k fold filled hoop and hooks (nickel free).
If you are allergic to sterling silver or have other metal allergies, please feel free to contact us for different materials. I'm more than happy to source right findings for you.

Care Instruction:
Lustre decorated items are delicate.
Please treat with love and clean with mild detergent & soft cloth or sponge.
Sterling silver earrings posts can be cleaned with silver polish (Goddard's recommended) but please do not dip ceramic parts into silver solution. This will make clear glaze milky.

A bit of history of and O design...
Since 2009 from a home studio in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, Japanese artist Yumi Ando has hand crafted intricately painted lustre necklaces and earrings, curious bunny brooches, miniature plant hangers, faceted geometric forms and more. Inspired by the natural world, industrial forms and drawing on her Japanese heritage, each piece is a unique cultural fusion and tells a personal story.

Shaped from porcelain, earthernware and raku, all her works are decorated and assembled by hand. Her pastel and traditional Japanese colours; indigo blue, matcha green and sakura pink were first created in 2010. She has been making lustre decorated jewellery and homewares since 2011 and her lustre work and colours are now part of and O design’s signature style which has recently become a trend in and of itself.

As of June 2017, she has made a new home to Canberra, Australia's bush capital. Yumi enjoys regular walks in the bush, luckily minutes from her home studio with Kangaroos hopping around and beautiful sunset every day.

We hope they bring you as much joy, as they have for her to create.

On Etsy since 2010

Tokyo meets Melbourne

Yumi has been making ceramic jewelleries and homewares since 2009 after studying Interior Design and Decoration at RMIT and worked in retails. She has always had a passion for clay since she was little. Yumi saw a gap in the market lacking hand crafted ceramic jewellery which you can feel maker's love and warmth. Back then laser cut metal and acrylic jewelleries were popular.

Her signature Japanese inspired coloured clays, patterns, shapes and lustre decorated was created at the early stage of her business launch. Her half moon earrings finished in yellow gold which comes from Japanese tradition of moon ceremony made in 2011 has become and O design's signature style.

As of June 2017 Yumi has made a new home to Canberra, Australia's bush capital, she has been enjoying slow traffic free life style and regular bush walks. Minutes from her home studio, she can admire hopping Kangaroos and native birds along with beautiful mountain and farm views.
