I simply thought
that these shells were beautiful.
It was in 2008, when I discovered the natural beauty of shells.It all started from a great green turban shell（yakogai） I had picked up when I was working as a diving instructor. I attempted to polish the yakogai.
Without any experience, I have spent countless days to do trial and error. Until this moment, I never thought about crafting the shells.
When I finally managed to complete a ring for the first time, it was most beautiful ring I have ever seen in my life.

No one particular way of crafting shells. How shells shows their uniqueness are only revealed when we start polishing.
“How should I craft this shell in order to shine as its best?” Sometimes days will pass by not knowing how I should polish the shell,but this is the most important time when crafting.
When the time pass, shell will show me the way to polish. I am surprised most of the time by the luster which it gives out.
Surprise is the happiest moment of my work.
