Mizuki is an award winning contemporary jewellery artist, living and working in Worcestershire having graduated from Hereford College of Arts.
Practicing in mark-making and playing with paper gives Mizuki simple yet delicate design ideas in her jewellery making. Enamelling is Mizuki’s most recent fascination in her practice, she creates unique mark-making patterns on delicate enamelled copper surfaces using the sgraffito (scratching) technique. Every line she draws is individual and is changed by the firing time in the kiln, giving different results in each project. Oxidised black silver fastenings for each enamelled element are carefully designed and handmade by Mizuki, the black lines cast like shadow lines parallel with the scratched enamel marks.
All of Mizuki’s jewellery creations are unique and one-off pieces. Once a piece is made or during its process of making, it feeds her inspiration to get and grow new ideas for the next project.
