Japanese artist Makiko Oda’s studies on environmental design, and plant life continue to be a key source of inspiration in her works. Her astute use of materials is evident in her elegant sculptural jewelry, formed with reclaimed slices of wood and layered with lustrous gold and silver leaf. Oda’s jewels reflect the varied expressions that plants show us: the way that green leaves ripple in the breeze and reflect sunlight, their ever-changing tones in the autumn as their borders overlap, and the elemental happiness that plants bring to people. Makiko aspires to create jewelry that “awakens feelings about nature’s natural forms and surrounding landscapes.”

She has been recognized with the Excellent Use of Materials Award at the International Craft Exhibition, Itami, Japan and the Excellent Prize award at the Japan Jewelry Art Competition.
