Unable to find his ideal jewelry, Japanese designer Takayoshi Yamanami started crafting his own pieces while working as a buyer and launched Detaj in 1995. The creative process always starts by developing a feeling for the material, by endless trials, making the most of the metal properties. Away from decorative concerns, the goal is to find some beauty in the functionality and structure of objects. All Detaj jewelry is handmade in Japan using precision hand tools and original methods. The designs are regardless of gender as creations address the individual.
