Born in Ibaraki, Japan in 1985, Mizuki graduated from Akita Municipal Junior College of Arts and Crafts in Visual Design. After that, she became interested in making jewellery and seeking a challenge in a totally different environment and came to Hereford UK in 2011 to study and graduated with a first class with honours in BA Jewellery Design
In Mizuki’s collection of jewellery, paper-thin porcelain or enamelled copper elements are set on an oxidised silver wire structure to sit like a drawing on the body. Mark-making and drawings are also important processes in her jewellery making. She examines the balance in space involving light and shadow, working with these delicate paper-thin elements and lines to weave a narrative into her jewellery.
