LIO & LINN
Masumi, the designer behind Lio & Linn, studied graphic design at Kanazawa College of Arts and began her career in Tokyo as an accessory designer where she designed innovative accessories for both men and women. Masumiʼs love of fashion led her to NYC where she worked alongside noted jewelry designers perfecting her skilled craft, while evolving her own advanced aesthetic.
In 2008, she launched her own jewelry collection using her primary method of wax carving allowing her to create soft, organic shapes. It was the start of an organic process based not just on materials but a fearless approach to life: playful, fresh, clear and curious.
