Akiko Shinzato

Akiko Shinzato is a jewellery artist who draws attention to the relationships between the body and mind. Since her study at Central Saint Martins she distinguished herself in several competitions, notably winning the Swarovski Design Project in 2015. The winning piece was on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum in conjunction with Alexander McQueen's exhibition Savage Beauty and also at the Vicenza Museum of Jewellery.

With her conceptual pieces, Akiko hopes to stimulate the viewer's imagination and thoughts whilst questioning the beauty and value.
