Maho Takahashi is a London based Japanese jewellery designer/maker specializing in one-off pieces that hold the middle between wearable art and contemporary jewellery.

 

She often draws inspiration from skeletal shapes and a returning material in her work is hair. Using hair in her work has become somewhat of a trademark and she is continuously trying to explore the boundaries of this slightly unusual material. She challenges the audience by placing hair in unexpected ways on the human body in the form of jewellery, and when not worn, the piece becomes a beautiful little creature of its own. Maho continues to develop this concept, creating a beautifully crafted body of work with a unique signature style.
