Miki Asai’s jewellery is inspired by intangible and those fleeting and changeable phenomenon, and how this portrays the nature of everything in the world. Her aesthetics and concept are strongly based on her Japanese aesthetic that finds beauty in impermanence, imperfection, transience and ephemerality.
"Things are either developing toward, or evolving from 'nothingness.'*
'Things are beautiful because they are fleeting.'*
Miki creates jewellery that captures and preserves momentary beauty to own fragments of a fleeting world, life and everything.
