I have been a fan of Momocreatura jewellery for a few years now. I first saw the unique designs in the Shoreditch boutique, Luna & Curious. Luna & Curious is a really cool store who always have interesting and beautiful items by really cool designers and artists.
I have a necklace by Momocreatura and I love it, it’s a bear hanging in chains and when I’m not sure what to wear, I wear the bear! I have been meaning to write this post for a while, as I really want to tell you all a little more about Momocreatura and the designer behind the brand!
Momoko was born and raised in Kyoto, Japan. Kyoto is the cultural heart of Japan, rich with japanese history and heritage. She studied art here and then moved to Tokyo to study jewellery design. She worked as a jewellery designer in Tokyo for a few years before heading to London to do an MA in jewellery design at Central Saint Martins.
As a child Momoko spent hours and hours emerging herself in books; Fairy tales, myths and fantasy. These stories inspire her work, as does both Japanese and European culture. Her work is macabre yet playful, with childhood references. Each piece is intricately handcrafted like a miniature sculpture in her London studio and sold directly to her customers online or in some of the worlds coolest boutiques. Alexa Chung is a fan and Momocreatura has been featured in publications like Vogue, Grazia & Sunday Times Style.
Momocreatura is a cool designer, her dark yet whimsical pieces are intricate and unusual. I’m a massive fan of hers and I’m so excited to share these photos of her work with you all!
