Ayuko Sakurai Secret Garden Bracelet
Secret Garden Bracelet is Bronze Design Award winner in 2018 - 2019 Jewelry, Eyewear and Watch Design Award Category.
Secret Garden Bracelet

This hand-fabricated piece has intense designs, directly on the surface or riveted individually. Lines and curves on the surface were carefully imprinted with steel tools that were also designed and made by the artist. Many of the images on metal came from personal memories of travels and studies of different cultures. Other small components such as rosy glass stones were created by hand through fusing glass and copper while the three dimensional rose was shaped from a flat sheet of metal.

Ayuko Sakurai

Ayuko Sakurai is a 2017 graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology with a MFA in Metals and Jewelry Design. She tends to combine multiple media and styles in her works, which allows her to explore different relationships among two- and three-dimensional arts, and simplicity and complexity. Her art-making process often starts from interpreting what she perceives and experiences.
