In the shadows

A Tokyo born jewellery designer has revealed a revolutionary jewellery idea. The Central St. Martins educated designer has come up with a line of jewellery that projects shadows onto your body. Her collection, called Cinematography , is made of metal mesh. Maiko Takeda drills holes into the metal by hand to creat trompe l'oeil effect.
Maiko Takeda says that the concept of the jewellery is that the shadows themselves become the jewellery. Here are some examples of her work:I certainly think that Takeda has designed something truly original.


  1. Innovative and imaginative. I really like the rose head piece.

  2. Interesting idea... not sure i'd like to try going on the Tokyo metro with that rose-hat on though. You might take someone's eye out... :)
