About

Traditional w/ a pinch of Contemporary

Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, I am a descendant from those who came to the islands seeking a better life during the sugar-plantation era. Traditions that have long faded within Japan’s current cultural practices have remained intact, continuing on in our family. Buddhism is a current theme within my life- going to the temple for funerals, obon (paying tribute to our deceased ancestors), and bon dance.
Bon dance, which is a festival in which we dance around a tower in celebration of our ancestors, is the main contributing inspiration for my hair accessories. Tsumami (pinching) is the technique in which squares of cloth are folded to create flowers for hair ornaments, known as kanzashi. Each petal is folded by hand where an entire piece may range anywhere from five petals to seventy-five petals or more. Weaving together this traditional Japanese technique with a contemporary touch of my own, what started as making kanzashi for myself for bon dance, has become a creative passion in which I'm happy to share.
Though it’s been an ongoing journey even to this day, I am able to discover bits and pieces of myself through creativity. Creation has always been a part of who I am and crafting has been the one area is my life where I experience uninhibited freedom and the feeling of belonging. A self-proclaimed introvert, crafting allows me to share parts of myself that is otherwise hidden from the world. As I evolve physically, mentally, and spiritually, so too will my creations.
My wish for you, as well as for myself and all other beings is to appreciate the small things and experience life. Thank you for allowing me to share with you my creations and for allowing them to become a part of your memories and life’s experience.

    According to my family and friends, the best way to describe me is quirky. I like to think of my tastes in life as uncommon; treading on the unbeaten path, occasionally straying towards normalcy. My passions include, but are not limited to surfing, baking, reading, bon dance, spirituality, metaphysics, and Buddhism. I find working with my hands, creating pretty and delicate things, enthralling. Weaving together my interests, with my love for creativity, the results are unique, eye-catching pieces. An avid believer in letting our inner goddess shine through, we are all beautiful beings and I hope my pieces can help to make you feel like a one-of-a-kind individual.
