Recommended Posts

-Challenge to Kickstarter with Truss Series SHIPPOU created utilizing the latest techniques in precious metal and artisan handiwork-

"Truss Series SHIPPOU" is art jewelry that expresses a "360 degree world" in a palm-sized frame.

It was born, making full use of Japanese craftsmanship to express three-dimensional forms and intricately intersecting brilliance, pursuing ''easy-to-use functionality'' suitable for a variety of uses.
We will begin accepting sales orders for a limited time on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter.

Sales Period: April 22, 2024 (Mon) to May 22, 2024 (Wed)



In the ancient city of Kanazawa, Japan, MIYAKITA aims to create "Beautiful products that can be used for 1,000 years," crafting ornaments such as Kanzashi(hairpins) and Obidome(sash clips) from precious metals by the hands of skilled artisan.
We have created SHIPPOU as can be used for various purposes art jewelry that pursues "Three-dimensional molding and brilliance" and "Functions that are easy to use in everyday life" all within the palm-sized form factor.


The outer periphery of SHIPPOU is formed using a beautiful architectural technique called ''Truss structure,'' which reduces the weight of precious metals and ensures strength, giving it a delicate and gorgeous impression.

A large number of triangles are created from 240 cylinders with a width of 0.9mm, and by assembling them three-dimensionally, a complex lattice-like light reflection is created, allowing you to enjoy the shine reminiscent of a tiara.
In addition, at the center, there are auspicious patterns (Shippou), representing the "Seven Treasures," arranged.

Furthermore, with our proprietary ball hook, it enables the exchange of ring-shaped hair elastics and adapts to various purposes. Not only can it be used as our main product, the Kanzashi, but also as a hair elastic, hairpin, bangle, and brooch. SHIPPOU is a small treasure that anyone can wear daily, regardless of gender or nationality.
