DEW by Kanako Hayakawa

I recently did an amazing show in Tokyo called Kira Kira. I was lucky to Kanako Hayakawa as a neighbor. I absolutely love her line of cast metal pieces called DEW.

I was so happy to go home with this pair of DEW by Kanako Hayakawa earrings…rose gold over sterling silver (I think they call this “pink gold” in Japan) with enamel. I absolutely love them!

Here is Kanako wearing more of her pieces from her Anima collection.
