Expertly crafted and shaped white sycamore, covered in gleaming 24k gold leaf is meticulously fabricated into an elegant and statement-making, sculptural neckpiece by artist Makiko Oda.
Japanese artist, Makiko Oda’s studies in environmental design and plant life are a key source of inspiration in her works. Her astute use of materials is evident in her elegant sculptural jewelry formed with reclaimed slices of wood. Oda’s jewels reflect the varied expressions that plants show us: the way that green leaves ripple in the breeze and reflect sunlight, their ever changing tones in the autumn as their borders overlap, and the elemental happiness that plants bring people.
