These discs of carefully hand cut, wafer-thin sterling silver threaded through handmade hoops add a quiet, regal air to their wearer, and it’s no coincidence. Japanese designer Momoko Hatano’s newest collection celebrates the beauty of almost-imperceptible imperfections in recycled precious metals and perfect proportions.
In self-confessed awe of its cultural heritage, Japanese designer Momoko Hatano’s newest collection riffs on the crisp white shirt of the jewellery world: the hoop earring. Originally trained as a painter in Sydney, Momoko’s specialty is the natural progression of her art, her career in jewellery borne from her drawing skill. Completely hand fabricated, her work is elegant and quietly fierce - sometimes simultaneously. So is she.
