Classiky Embroidered Brooches by Reiko Oka
Embroidered 'Tin' brooches by Rieko Oka and Classiky Studio.
These pretty brooches feature the delicate embroidered panels by designer Rieko Oka. The patterns inspired by natural elements where she lives, use subtle, muted primary colours. She creates the patterns by hand, so the designs have an imperfect symmetry.
Based in Hokkaido, the northern part of Japan where the beautiful landscape can go from colourful Spring to deep, deep snow in Winter. Every season can be experienced richly, and it is this that Rieko Oka expresses through her patterns and designs.
