Let me introduce Maiko Takeada

Maiko Takeda is a milliner and jewellery designer currently based in Tokyo. She’s a surprising artist and her designs succinctly combine material clarity with a surreal sense of transformation.  Trained in jewellery design and millinery, her pieces combine aspects of both trades and are made with finely-cut strips of acetate affixed to a contemporary chainmail base. Her designs are almost from another world ; poetic, exotic and surreal …

“I believe my work lives its moments once they’re worn on the body, rather than being displayed static in a museum.”

You might have seen Björk wearing Maiko Takeda’s surreal jewellery pieces in the past and more lately for the digital release of Björk’s new Vulnicura album.
