Coastal Karma Jewels creator, Yumi Nagumo, makes each unique piece by hand in a zen crafting cave in Vancouver, BC.
Her creative journey in lapidary arts and metalsmithing began in 2015. It all started with a curious spark of, ‘I wonder if I could make my own jewelry?’
Foundational lessons were taken with Kelly Allanson, further interest led to workshops with Robyn Cornelius, and mentorship from Ron Vauthrin, plus lots of time spent exploring/experimenting. The curious spark of ‘I wonder…‘ has kept growing into an ever-evolving self-motivated fire.
Designs are heavily influenced by the natural wear and darkened tones of Antique jewelry, elements of nature, and dainty details of Eastern cultures.
