About this Artist
"From an early age I have loved creating precious little things."
Chihiro Makio first considered a career as a painter. While in college, however, she discovered the fun and endless possibilities of three-dimensional materials. Wood, fiber, glass, and metals were some of her favorites.
Makio hand fabricates her jewelry pieces from both metal and glass, using oxidized sterling silver, 24K gold-plated silver, and gold-lined glass beads. She pierces the metals and then sews the elements together with thread and the delicate beads.» View the full artist page of Chihiro Makio
It takes time to make great artwork. Most of the pieces we offer are created one at a time by the artist, and shipped directly to you from the artist’s studio.
