Mizuki Tochigi

Contemporary jewellery artist

Mizuki is a London / Tokyo based contemporary jewellery artist. During her study at Central Saint Martins, she has been focused on sustainability. She believes strongly that sustainable thinking can be a positive, creative force and uses this thinking to drive her designs. The challenge of projects that focus on responsible practice encourages her to creatively use waste or environmentally friendly material to make less waste and use less energy. She wants to challenge the perception of everyday materials, adding value to it by using her jewellery skills to reassess our relationship with waste – she believes in making a direct change to our actions for sustainability through her jewellery.
