Tin Breath Collection

East Meets West

We stumbled upon Tin Breath when we stopped to compliment a chic woman wearing a beautiful bright silver, undulating necklace. It was unlike anything we'd seen.

It turns out the woman we complimented, Shoko Tsurumoto, is the designer of Tin Breath. Her Tin Breath jewelry line is a classic, subtle Japanese design based on traditional craft. Each piece features a reversible plate with a different design on each side. One surface is from Japanese paper “Washi” with an irregular, organic texture. The other side is from Italian watercolor paper that has been used in Italy for 700 years.

East meets West – you can enjoy two traditional designs. Each piece is based on pliable tin at its core. You can shape and shift each piece from asymmetrical to symmetrical to fit your mood and style.
