Sculptural Safety Pin Jewelry by Tamiko Kawata

By on Tuesday, December 19, 2017 2 Comments

Safety pin jewelry is not new, especially to fans of  jewelry designer, Tom Binns. However, Tamiko Kawata, a Japanese artist now living in the US takes the humble safety pin to new heights.  Her sculptural wearable art uses the pins as building blocks!


Her innovative way of grouping the pins together, sometimes using two colors, makes a statement!  From Egyptian style collars to long cascading pieces, her imagination is boundless.


You can see more on her work on Artsy.net.  The artist is represented by the Garvey|Simon Gallery in New York.

  1. Isn't it amazing that incredible designs and sculptures can be created from the lowly safety pin.

    I admire those who can see beyond the original use
    of any item and turn it into something beautiful and unique.
