The Ama pieces are dedicated to the traditional female pearl divers of Japan.
Records of the Ama women date back as early as 927 AD in Japan's Heian period. Early Ama were known to dive for seafood and were honored with the task of retrieving abalone for shrines and emperors. Ama means “sea woman” in Japanese.
Each and every pearl is naturally unique hence their shape, size and color might slightly vary. Just like 'wabi-sabi' the quintessential Japanese aesthetic holds, there's beauty in things imperfect.
