Childhood memories of growing up in Japan, prior training and careers as a fashion designer in her native country and as a dancer in New York all provide Yasuko Azuma with inspiration for her elegantly feminine and intricately detailed 18k gold precious jewelry collection.

Yasuko Azuma launched her first full scale collection in 2003, under her own name, after mastering the craft of delicate hand piercing and a hand finished “diamond dust” texture. Both techniques continue to be part of her signature style and have garnered the attention of leading retailers, press and consumers.

These various collections reflect Yasuko’s feeling and impressions of nature that has surrounded her throughout her life. She recalls “I remember the intensity of the cherry blossoms in the Springs and the dramatic reds and yellows of the Fall leaves. The winter time was even more magical, with the glow and sparkle of the sun on the fresh fallen snow. I try to recreate these images in my work.”
