Jamie ゆき Carlson is a Canadian designer of mixed Swedish and Japanese heritage. Her shop, Scandinazn, shows her speciality - recycled leather jewelry. Festively in fun colors! My favorite of her different collections is her confetti inspired one where each and every spot is hand punched from pre-loved leather.  Pointilism in jewelry form!

Jamie says she is a "self-taught jewelry maker, but honed my design skills at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, where I earned m y Bachelor of Design in Fashion and Technology. Scandinazn was started as a side project while I was in school, born out of my love for creating pieces from repurposed textiles. The fashion industry is notorious for its wastefulness, which is why sustainability plays a huge role in the philosophy of my brand."

She is clever.  Her futuristic style earrings shows how she creatively uses the remainder of the leather after the holes are cut. These really remind me of amoeba!

This origami inspired painted jewelry set is clearly inspired by her Japanese heritage.

As is the lovely abstract Japanese fractal flower earrings below :

Also noteworthy are her ear jackets!

Jamie is also on Instagram.
