HELLO FROM JAPAN
I am Mari, a self-taught jewellery maker and mineral lover who run this small shop Sanctuary.
I have this idea that we all have a spiritual sanctuary within ourselves,
the place where we keep our ethos, emotions, and everything we wish to protect from the outside world.
And that’s where this brand / shop name – Sanctuary – came from.
I aim to make personal adornments that evoke our inner sanctuary.
Something to help us stand firm in this busy world,
and to remind us who we are, what we believe, or how we want to live our life.
Each piece of Sanctuary is handmade with love and care using crystals full of unique character
and responsibly sourced metals in my home studio located in a small lakeside town in Japan.
