A fairly new venture, I started making pins in 2018. The designs featured on my site and shop are all original concepts inspired by my travels to Japan.
The first pin I created was the shamisen simply because I wanted a shamisen pin to share with a couple of friends. My sanshin pin design soon followed because...why not? Shamisen and sanshin are instruments that I play almost daily; they define who I am.
I sketch and scribble often, so I thought pin-making would be a fun way to share my art. I hope my pins will bring joy to those who wear and collect them. I think next to food, pins are great conversation-starters.
