This timeless series explores traditional patterns derived from Japanese paintings, wood blocks and kimono patterns from the Edo period. “Ichimatsu” is a checkerboard pattern which was made famous by a Kabuki actor who regularly used this pattern in his costume. The “Uroko” motif, a fish or dragon scale pattern, was used in traditional art to ward off evil spirits.
This pendant is reversible, and can be worn showing either the “Ichimatsu” motif, or the “Uroko” motif. Both sides have a matte finish.
