Since the very first piece was sold as AnyNewYork in 2003, The collections have continued to grow and evolve with every season. An artist at an early age, Naoyo remains true to her heart and gains inspiration from her surroundings. She currently lives and works in new york city while continuing to draw from the organic. This stark contradiction between her urban environment and the natural surroundings in which she was raised is the basis of her design philosophy. She incorporates delicate details in every piece with a warm and playful spirit thus attaining bold intricacy and timelessness. The decades of new york experience has afforded Naoyo the opportunity to expand her mind and to broaden her creativity while continuing to blur the line between art and jewelry.
Her distinct vision can be seen in her most recent series 'lava' and 'vine.' Every piece from these two collections is created by melting or infusing raw material and chain thus evoking a 'couture' feeling for those clients seeking a special piece of jewelry to add to their collections.
