âInspired by the Beauty of Simplicityâ The philosophy behind the collections is that fashion should be simple and easy. Ayumi's jewelry uses influences from her cultural background, combined with minimalism and geometric shapes, giving her jewelry a contemporary feel with a touch of personality.
Ayumi takes inspiration from the beauty of simplicity, trends from around the world, everyday objects and colors. She designs her jewelry according to the seasons, with the intention of her designs being easy to style and wearable for any occasion. Each piece of jewelry is made individually by-hand by Ayumi in her home studio. She began making jewelry because she noticed a lack of jewelry on the market that captured her style. She started making jewelry as a hobby and after her designs caught the attention of her friends and family, she decided to sell her jewelry at local stores and events. Her jewelry is now expanding to other states and Mexico. All the pieces are designed to work well in a variety of combinations or as a singular accent to dress any outfit.
