Drawing inspiration from her island upbringing in Hawaii and Micronesia, Misa Hamamoto incorporates her affinity with nature through sculpted organic forms and precious and semiprecious gemstones. Through the ancient art of lost-wax casting, she skillfully carves her designs from wax, which then undergoes a casting process that solidifies molten metal. Misa’s unique line of jewelry is entirely handmade in her Los Angeles studio. She puts lots of love and thought into each and every design that shines through to all of her collectors. Every piece of Misa Jewelry is a balanced union of nature's beauty and the spirit of the modern city.
