“I like making jewellery because it is an art form that we can closely relate to physically and psychologically. Once the pieces are worn, their essence passes on to the wearer and becomes part of their identity and feelings.” says Kayo Saito. Her work explores the connection to nature and the environment. She is inspired by plants and trees, their seasonal changes, rustling sounds and swaying movements. The abundant colours and textures found in natural forms are translated into Saito’s own creative language.
