Zeami’s Mask is inspired by Noh Theater, an art form created in 14th century Japan by Kan'ami Kiyotsugu and his son Zeami Motokiyo. Performed by masked actors, Noh is a strange and ancient art form that channels controlled grace and mythology. Noh, translates to 'craft', and the performers use their masks and gestures to imply the essence of stories rather than re-enacting them directly. For this collection, we wanted to embody mystery and revelation by channeling the shapes and movements of Miromachi Japan allowing the women who wear each piece to reveal their mood, history, and beauty through our jewelry.
