Designer: Yayoi Forest

I stumbled upon Yayoi Forest via Not Couture's link to the lovely US jewellery site CatBird. Entranced by the ethereal feel of the jewellery I decided to look Yayoi up, and discovered a magical world of dainty, detailed 14ct gold a silver jewellery.

Currently based in Brooklyn but originally from Kyoto, Japan, Yayoi Inada's jewellery is influenced by her upbringing close to a forest; the sounds, smells and touch of the woodland, from falling rain to the rough of tree bark.

From pendants engraved with owls and stars, to delicate rings studded with little diamonds, Yayoi's designs are a little mythical, a little rustic, but beautifully charming.
