MM Design

I make a wide variety of Japanese inspired, handcrafted necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Using “washi” and origami papers, I also make glass tile pendants. In addition I make small “washi” covered boxes, highly decorative and suitable as gift boxes, as well as “washi” covered tansu-style mini-chests from kits purchased in Japan.
