BARK is a British made jewellery brand created by Miwako Yoshioka.
Her collection was first snapped up by shops in London and Tokyo in 2003. She showed her first official collection at Paris fashion week in 2005.
Being a trained jeweller, quality and craftsmanship to her are as important as good design. Every single piece is meticulously hand-crafted in her little workshop; keeping it from becoming a mass-produced object and highlighting the delicates and intimacy of each piece.
Having come a long way since her early days of toying with the dream of creating beautiful things, Miwako has turned her passion in to a career and continues to be excited by her creations, still involving herself 100% in the production of her jewellery.
Although Miwako’s collections encompass different themes every season, nostalgic quality is a consistent feature. She often takes inspirations from childhood memories and quirky little objects that she is drawn to on the streets of London. Carefully chosen materials such as 1920’s buttons and beads, heart/star shaped semi-precious beads are also beautiful features of her collection, making it absolutely unique and desirable.
