Textural Gold Jewelry from Yasuko Azuma

By Erika W.

Highlights from Couture 2011

Inspired by nature, Yasuko Azuma‘s textural gold jewelry is a fresh option for everyday wear. Finely hammered gold, smooth satin finishes and loose organic shapes create natural refinement with subtle detail. The designer forms leaves and vines in rich gold with unique piercing techniques. Azuma’s “diamond dust” texture takes hammering to the next level providing a rich canvas for rose cut diamonds and colored gemstones. Azuma’s jewelry is about the cohesive piece, a harmony of elements. “I prefer not to follow trends but to create styles that are enduring, versatile and collectible. I also believe in jewelry that is more subdued with unexpected surprises and details rather than bold diamond statement looks.” – Yasuko Azuma
