West Coast Jewelry, Handmade by Yumi Nagumo in Vancouver, BC


who makes ckj pieces?

Hello! I’m Yumi, I’m the artist/maker of CKJ pieces.

I enjoy creating β€˜something out of nothing’ with my hands - each piece of jewelry I create starts off as precious metal sheet + wire, is torch fired using silver &/or gold solder, refined by hand using emery paper & hand files, then undergoes multiple rounds of polishing using a small hand-held rotary tool. Countless hours of happy work going into each piece.

Thank you for stopping by!
