    Atelier Shinji Ginza: Handmade contemporary jewelry workshop in Ginza!

    Atelier & shop in one!

    I stumbled across this small shop on my way back to Ginza from the fish market. I was drawn in and I couldn't help it - it's so beautiful. It's only like 5 mins walk from all the Ginza glitz and it's a small family-run handmade jewelry business and they make everything in their basement workshop - which you can see from peep-holes in the glass cabinet - SO COOL! The pieces are designed to be organic with super fun design themes like vegetables, cutlery. I bought myself my first Japanese souvenir of Okra earrings (Okra, y'all!). It's reasonably priced and it's all handmade and top quality.

    The son was able to help me (in perfect English). He even pointed me in the right direction to buy sake and a japanese kimono! I could go wild in this shop!!!

    What to buy: Keep an eye out for their Sakura (cherry blossom) series, Vegetable series and Champagne series!!

    What to pay: Earrings are around $120, rings around $150, but there is a great selection cheaper than this too.
