Because everyone is different: Pearl design by Eiji Uemura

June 15, 2018 - June 28, 2018
11:00am – 6:00pm, Closed (Suns & Mons)

Eiji Uemura believes every pearl is different as is every individual. Nearly 100 years ago, humans began creating perfect rounded “cultured” pearls making them unique in comparison to natural pearls.

Eiji has taken a new modern, approach;
cultured pearls should each be different, maintaining a more natural shape. Pearls, like people, do not need to be the same.

Eiji Uemura is a 3rd generation successor of Uemura Cultured Pearls. Starting with a popular pearl necklace with perfect rounded pearls, Eiji's natural sensibility and fire led to the innovation of unique pearl jewelry as wearable art.

Japanese tradition meets modern technologies:

The innovative nature of Eiji's concepts includes newly designed pearls with traditional Makie (Japanese Lacquer sprinkled with gold and silver powder), Kiriko (faceted), and a combination of pearls with Kurochiku (Black Bamboo) as well as rubies or diamonds. Eiji has also challenged himself to produce oversized pearls, uncommon shapes like cubed pearls, and more.

As natural as Cultured Pearls could be:

Eiji began aqua-farming untreated, natural-colored pearls with no color adjustment. They are similar in look to natural pearls but they are cultured. Eiji was fascinated with natural-colored pearls, a unique appreciation which was lost for a long period of time. He combined modern techniques with an old-world feel.

YUKI NEO Brief Encounters

May 29, 2018 - June 9, 2018

“Brief Encounter”

There’s a Japanese saying: “Even a chance of meeting is like having sleeves touch each other when passing by, that’s karma”. Buddha teaches us to value every encounter in life.

I’m not very religious, nor sure about there being a previous life, but I’m fascinated with the moment that every life’s path and elements of life coincidentally cross each other at a point of endless time.

In appreciation of that moment, I stop, feel the air, see the light and even sense the subtle emotions in the eyes behind the windows. In an instant they come together and disappear as fast.

My heart is touched by such fragile dramas. That’s when I click my shutter so I can cherish those ephemeral moments. Then, days later, I realize that what I encountered might have been a reflection of inner-self, and how meaningful it is for me to have not passed it by.
