Maker Spotlight: Misaki Sano
Today we’re featuring the jewelry of Misaki Sano
, who will be bringing her one of a kind jewelry to our San Francisco Holiday Market
next weekend! This will be the first time Misaki’s jewelry will be showcased to the public and we are so honored that Renegade Craft Fair gets to be the venue!
recently finished her metal arts degree at California College of the Arts. Every piece Misaki creates is one of a kind and stems from an artistic stream of consciousness type of process. There are no strict designs or drafts. Instead, Misaki follows her internal aesthetic guide, replacing the pencil with her metal tools, and “sketches” her designs as she shapes and molds them. Each piece of jewelry is like a time capsule of how the artist was feeling at the very moment it was created. We are in love with her effortless drawing earrings
, which is named perfectly to encapsulate Misaki’s “sketching with metal” process.
Misaki finds beauty in things that are simple, subtle, asymmetrical, irregular, imperfect, and her work is inspired by those elements. These inspirations are then made tangible, being formed and shaped out of 14K gold and sterling silver, becoming wearable art.
We love seeing maker’s workspaces and Misaki kindly captured some of her process for us. Isn’t it wonderful seeing materials in their raw form juxtaposed with the final piece?
Excited for our San Francisco Holiday Market? So are we! Take a look at all of Misaki’s work on her website and what she’s up to on Instagram. And don’t forget to come to our fair at the Fort Mason Center Festival Pavilion this weekend. Only a few days left!
