*Created in 2002 in Japan by Ryo Kator, Ryo and his partner have been working on jewelry collections using traditional Japanese techniques to create jewels that are also small works of art. 

Rusty Thought’s jewels have very specific patinas that are obtained through ‘Ohaguro-yaki’ — a technique traditionally used to prevent rust on swords. Silver and gold are oxidized using sulfide found in some Japanese hot springs.Their pieces derive from the concept of Wabi Sabi, a philosophy based on the acceptance of imperfection and impermanence which is not easily understandable by Western culture. The essential beauty lays hidden inside the object, revealing itself only to those whose sensitivity allows it. Each exquisite, carefully crafted piece holds an intrinsic beauty that develops with time. Their jewelry was designed to be passed down from generation to generation.
