Okomido

Sebastapol, CA
Fillmore Street Gallery
Okomido was conceived with the idea that the jewelry we wear reflects what we value. Now more than ever as we re-evaluate what is meaningful and worthwhile it has become apparent that personal connectivity and stewardship of natural resources are universally significant priorities.

Designer Midori Ferris Wayne became fascinated with the decorative arts and jewelry history while working at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and came to see the art of jewelry as a means of sharing values from one generation to the next. This became the guiding principle for okomido jewelry.

In keeping with a profound commitment to sustainability and eco-conscious design no new mining is supported by our practices. Without exception all the materials we use are completely reclaimed from argentium sterling silver and 18 karat gold to vintage gemstones resurrected from antique jewelry. In addition okomido has embraced a centuries-old Japanese tradition of alloying gold and copper to create the distinctive chocolate-colored shakudo which features in many of our pieces.

Okomido design focuses on an inventive interpretation of organic motifs and distinctive contrasts in texture and color. Painstakingly hand-fabricated by artisans in Sonoma County California every piece has a history often incorporating vintage elements that contain their own stories of previous stylish wearers and traditions of craft. This historical connection brings additional meaning to our work and provides yet another reason to treasure the jewelry for future generations.

The name okomido comes from Қko which is the European equivalent of "Eco" and the designer Midori Ferris Wayne's nickname Mido. As if that weren't enough Midori means "green" in Japanese.
