Simple yet unique, delicate yet bold. Each piece is designed with a classy twist: taking inspirations from the past, something that captures the present, then works in the distant future....
MWFJ focuses on jewelry that 'locks-in' memory then brings it back everytime you catch it with your eyes. A jewelry that allows you to travel through time. Your piece could be a mini time-machine. 
All of MWFJ jewelry is designed and made entirely in Los Angeles, using only conflict-free, ethically obtained natural gemstones. 
MWFJ also offers custom designs for reimagining & transforming old family engagement rings into something that is made to fit your style.
We would love to hear your story: past, present and the future ones!

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Born in Ashiya-city, Hyogo Japan, moved to Los Angeles at age 7. 
Makiko spent majority of her career surrounded by the Hollywood storytellers, designers and visual development artists in CG animated films. Through the experience of witnessing the creative process in the industry first hand -- the desire to combine the storytelling and a personal obsession with the engagement/wedding rings became something real.
Trained by the industry veterans for hand carving "lost-wax" techniques in NY, metalsmithing in Copenhagen, & CAD (computer) digital sculpting in LA, combining the ancient and the new techniques hoping to bring a good balance of modern-nostalgia to the pieces.
When not designing, Makiko spends her quality time being the enthusiast for storytellers at movie studios, giving two-cents to creative script development... and -- singing & trying to memorize the dance choreography of K-pop girls group songs (dreaming to be one of them.)
