I had the chance to sit down with jewelry designer Hiromi Yunokuchi and pick her brain about why she decided to start her own jewelry/accessory line. I asked her…

  1. Why did you start making jewelry? I couldn’t find the accessories I wanted in stores so I started making them myself!
  2. How long have you been making jewely? Since I was 25 years old.
  3. Who/what inspires you to create? I’m mostly inspired by what I see in magazines and the latest trends I see in them.
  4. Where do you sell your jewelry? I sell my jewelry twice a year at a handmade market and to friends and co-workers.
  5. What challenges do you face as a designer? Sometimes I struggle to keep up with new ideas for my jewelry. I make so much of it so it’s hard to think of something I haven’t done before.
  6. Do you have any advice to give to someone who wants to start a career in fashion/jewelry design? Just try to do what you love.
  7. What is your price range for your jewelry? The price range is 1000-1500 yen.

After our interview Hiromi gifted me this ring! A very beautiful and classic design.
