About

 

            

 Yuki Kuramitsu is a New Mexico, US based jewelry designer. She was born and raised in Kanagawa Japan. Yuki began her career as a make-up artist. However, she had been thinking that she wanted challenge herself, and try new things, then moved to New York in 2013 to study the art of jewelry making at Studio Jewelers Ltd in Manhattan. She learned jewelry design/rendering and comprehensive jewelry training such as metalsmithing, soldering, wax-carving, stone-settings, and enameling and more. Also, she worked as a bench jeweler for jewelry designer Ayaka Nishi, and Catbird in Brooklyn, NYC.

  She is currently focusing on her own line, which is jewelry inspired by natural substances, places, and views that she feels are beautiful in her daily life. Also she has a special feeling about bones from her deep interest in anatomy. This made her think bones have mysterious shape, charm and strength, and Yuki aspires to turn this into jewelry using her own  approach.
