Jewelry Design ’99

Yuka Saito creates naturalistic pieces, mostly from polypropylene, in her Upper West Side studio. She is inspired by nature but does not aim for verisimilitude. Her jewelry has sold in numerous gallery shows and resides in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.
