Ethereal Jewelry Inspired by Sea Creatures

Mariko Kusumoto‘s fabric art is transformed into a line of jewelry that is simply ethereal and utterly delightful. The Japanese artist’s three-dimensional polyester wearables are inspired by sea creatures where translucency lends to an undeniable recreation. On the other end of the spectrum, the multi-talented artist also creates metal and resin art which further displays her astounding dedication to craftmanship. According to her: “A playful, happy atmosphere pervades my work. Many of my pieces come from accidental discoveries. During the experimentation process, a breathtaking moment often happens. I catch those moments and develop ideas from that point.”
