Junko Nakazawa is inspired by modern, simple shapes and lines as well as geometric beauty found in nature. Her Japanese metal craft background is apparent in the sensitivity and refinement shown by her work.
Nakazawa meticulously creates each tiny part by hand using 18K gold and other precious metals. She lathe turns her jewelry parts instead of cast them to achieve a sharp, clean finish. Matte surface treatment gives each piece an elegant sheen.
