From ancient times in Japan, Miyadaiku - carpenters specially trained to construct shrines and temples - practiced a wood joining method called Kumite and Tsugite, without the use of any metal parts such as nails or bolts to lengthen or to connect timbers. The art of this joinery was well established by the Edo‐Period (1603 - 1868) and it is still practiced today to build sacred edifices throughout Japan.


The artistic techniques of Kumite and Tsugite began in the 7th century in Japan and now, like many other traditional handcrafts, face the question of its survival. With over 30 years of experience as a practicing architect and designer, it is very natural  that I should be interested in this traditional craft which inspired me to create this work, and as well I hope this series of my jewellery raises an awareness of the presence of this highly sophisticated art‐Joinery in the art‐jewellery genre.
