Jewellery by Miriam Mitsuko Utsumi

Spool to make cat tail



Miriam Mitsuko Utsumi uses a variety of techniques to make her jewellery. I also include some projects which aren’t jewellery, but could be.

Cords are make using a Spool as above and are also used as handles of her bags.

Tiny flowers (see larger ones here) are made using heat treatment

Spirals made using heat treatment

Stars, I think they also use heat treatment.

Balls which I think are cut, not heat treated.
