Studio Rhino is a most appropriate name for a jewelry store with whimsical silver animal jewelry. California based Tomoko, who is of Japanese descent, makes these tiny creatures out of precious metal clay. She uses fine silver (0.999% silver) and sterling silver (92.5% silver).
Her minimalist style stud earrings unerringly capture just the right details to make the depicted animals a delight to behold. Tomoko's ability to add really small wire bits and scrolls to some of her designs is amazing!
Tomoko majored in Fine Arts. It is clear she loves the creative process especially with precious metal clay. She also takes great photographs with a clever choice of colored backgrounds and occasional props for her pieces.
