K. Mita design
Keiko Mita was born on tiny Rebun Island off the northernmost tip of Japan. Set in a crystal blue sea and ablaze with alpine flora, the often stormy and isolated island has been a powerful influence on her work. Her minimalist designs combine complex shapes and textures inspired by her multi-cultural background.
Using the lost wax technique and working mostly in 18 karat gold, Mita incorporates diamonds, pearls, and other precious and semi-precious stones into her jewelry. Mita discovered metal craft at Hokkaido University where the idea of transforming metal into infinite forms fascinated her. She later expanded her aesthetic vision at The Emily Carr School of Design in Vancouver and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.
