Kayo Saito

IN BLOSSOM. Kayo Saito’s creations offer a voyage to the poetic and blooming garden. Her visionary style turns jewellery into an art form. She uses her exquisite goldsmith skills to create organic forms of great subtlety, forged from 18ct gold and silver. Kayo Saito’s unique sculptural jewellery is a hybrid of Japanese and European aesthetics and techniques. She trained in Japan and the UK, and gained a masters degree from the Royal College of Art in 2001. Kayo Saito’s numerous awards include Goldsmiths Company; British Jewellers’ Association; Bombay Sapphire Martini Glass Competition; and Development Award, Crafts Council. She was shortlisted for the UK's Art Foundation Awards in 2010 and chosen for the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust award in 2016. I am delighted to present Kayo at the “JEWELLERY TALENT OF TODAY”, a novel Initiative that SECOND PETALE put in place with CHRISTIE’S JEWELLERY PARIS to spotlight remarkable talent on the global Jewellery Art scene. For this initiative Kayo created THE PRIMAVERA NECKLACE, a mastery work with a metal, the leaves are so delicate that I can almost feel their spring fragrance.
