Meet the Artisan: Yuki Hasegawa
These beautiful earrings from Yuki, are artfully made by hand using traditional Japanese braiding techniques. They are created with every wearer in mind. She would like to share with you the meaning behind the Myoga style earring.
"Myoga" knot is named after its shape that looks like Japanese ginger (myoga). Myoga also means "God's protection". During the age of Japanese civil wars, Samurais wore myoga emblems at battles, praying to god for protection. So I wish God's protection to the person who will wear the myoga knots when I make them."
