With a strong interest in jewellery and its relation to body and wearer, Miho Ishizuka is a Jewellery designer based in Japan and London.

During the time when she was pursuing her BA in Jewellery design in Central Saint Martins, Miho had always been focused on creating jewellery which requires the presence of body to be completed.

Miho’s collection, which is called “The Body is Temporarily Removed”, questions the fundamental role of jewellery and its relationship with the human body. Miho believes that our physical body is often forgotten when it’s hidden under dazzling jewellery. This collection, inspired by the props, stands and archaeological tools used commonly in museums, redirects our attention, guiding people to observe and celebrate our human form as a living sculpture that is artistic and appreciative.
