The word “shizen” means “nature” in Japanese, and Mieko Takahashi-Shull creatively incorporates nature (from the plants and animals in her backyard to her dog, Kumo) into Shizen Designs, her line of whimsical metal jewelry. Besides metal, Mieko also enjoys incorporating freshwater pearls, semi-precious stones, and Swarovski crystals into her work. “I like making things that are tiny and shiny,” she says.
In honor of Mieko’s birthday, from July 16 through July 31, 2010 shoppers at Shizen Designs will receive 10% off the purchase of one item, or they can buy one and the second half off. Did we mention the free US shipping? And Scoutie Girl readers will also receive an extra 5% off their purchase. Just mention Scoutie Girl in the message to seller during checkout.
Thank you for sponsoring Scoutie Girl, Mieko, and happy birthday!
