Costume Jewelry designer MOTOI 基
国内外の様々な材料を収集し、唯一無二(one of kind)の作品を次々と生み出している。
Motoi’s career as an artist began in 2000 after being inspired by a French wire necklace. Since then, she has created original, one of a kind costume jewelry which is versatile and unique. She established her costume jewelry brand in 2008 and created her brand under the name MotoideRico in 2011. Her designs are available at select shops in Sapporo, Japan. She frequently travels and exhibits her designs a few times each year. She participated in the Manicolle Tokyo Gift show in 2010.
Her inspiration comes from music, dance and the art of kimono. She has played the flute since she was seven years old. She thinks creating art is like playing music. Her color combination is like the harmony of music; her use of shape, like rhythm. Her approach to design is like that of kimono aesthetics. She believes that jewelry is the spice of fashion: balance is essential.
