Mr.Nakamura and his jewerly

Mr.Nakamura is a talented jewelry designer and a chaser. I have met him first maybe about 10 years ago. I bought a nice pair of silver earings at a temporary jewelry stall in a big department store, they were not very inexpensive though very unique and I loved them - they were made in the shape of geckos XD Then I have talked to the salesman and knew the jewelry on the stall was what he had made by himself. He was a young, a bit faminine man and said that first he had learned making the musical instruments then become a jewelry designer & chaser. Since then I have bought his jewelry from time to time, sometimes asked him to make ones just for me.
About 3 years ago he - Mr.Nakamura has left for Firenze, Italy to study jewelry making and stil lived there. And now he has come back to Japan for some months and exhibits & sells his jewelry just for short period in a department store. So I went to the store yesterday evening, enjyed talking to him and seeing his recent works, then got some. I could't afford the jewelry he'd made with his "traditional Firenze" technique, also they were too delicate to wear on my daily life, so I chose more modern and casual pieces. How do you think about my new ring and brooch I purchasde from him? :)

A silver mantis brooch.

A silver ring with a citrine.
