Creator and designer, Misa Hamamoto draws inspiration for her handcrafted jewelry from her island upbringing in Hawaii and Micronesia. She incorporates her affinity with nature into her designs through sculpted organic forms and precious and semiprecious gemstones from her world travels. Through the ancient art of lost-wax casting, Misa skillfully carves her designs from wax, which then undergo a casting process that solidifies molten metal. Every piece of Misa Jewelry is a balanced union of nature’s beauty and the spirit of the modern city.
