ABOUT



Hello!
My name is Nao.

I was born in Japan and moved to UK when I was 18.

I self taught making jewellery and started selling them at the Spitalfields Market in East London in 1998.
Later it evolved to RUST jewellery.

I met Artemis Russell in 2002, and she joined RUST as a women's jewellery designer.
We work together ever since.
We opened a shop in Tokyo in 2006, London in 2009, and Yarmouth shop in 2015.

Artemis and I married in 2010.
Now we live on the Isle of Wight on the south coast of England, with two children,  and our cat Plimsoll.

This blog is about what I see, what I make, and what I love.
My interests are taking photographs, working on leather, and small adventures with my family.
