The time of bijoux

Clocks turned into jewelry with a patient work of composition: it is the work of Tomoko Tokuda,Japanese designer who lives in Milan.
If Italians are drawn to the passion for food, what is that fascinates the Japanese? Who visits the Land of the Rising Sun knows it: the design. Essential and refined, rather than exotic. It must be the fruit of Japanese roots if a designer like Tomoko Tokuda, Japanese but grew up in Italy and France, found an absolutely original way in the world of quality bijoux. A Homi, the Milan exhibition dedicated among other things to the jewelry designer, Tomoko has presented her latest works of a story began when, at age 24, she was struck by old clocks at an antique store. Dials and lancets, metaphor of time passing and, at the same time, design elements as the same but always different, have become the material to work with. Time as a unique collection of jewelry made from a mosaic of wheels, gears and numbers: for sure it is an original choice. But it is also interesting from an aesthetic point of view. Her jewels are created with a selection of unique pieces “collected in antique markets around the world.” And, since the watchmaking work is a cousin of the goldsmith, with the work of Tomoko we are seeing a surprising marriage. But you do not ask what time it is to necklaces, earrings and rings.
