Where does the brand get energy/inspiration from?

Designing is in my blood. Both my grandfathers were designers.
On my mom's side, my grandfather designed the most beautiful silver pieces,
my husband and I have trays and vases all over our house
and always think of him when we use them. my grandfather on my dad's
side designed beautiful jewellery but much different pieces than I design.
I am extremely sentimental so I like to create pieces that have meaning or evoke emotion that
the wearer can enjoy for a lifetime. Even the line's name-hokise is a namesake.




Hokise collection looks so poetic & beautiful. How are the designs made?

My design ideas come to me at the most random times-usually just as I'm
about to fall asleep or driving since that's when I do the most reflecting.
I draw out my ideas and thoughts then work with my manufacturers
to help execute the design. Usually, we go through 8-10 CAD's
(Computer Animated Designs) before I feel it's perfect and a go!




How are the gold, pink, and whilte golds each show different image?

Different golds look good on different skin types and I certainly
don't want to leave anyone out :)
I'm a yellow gold person myself but rose gold looks so beautiful on
fair complected skin. And I've noticed some people only wear
white gold. Everyone has their reasons...




Is there an affordable options for all shoppers?

Yes! My vintage initial necklace seems to be everyone's favorite piece
but not everyone can afford the gold so I decided to make a silver version too.


What can be the signature piece of Hokise?

I would definitely say it's either the vintage initial necklace or the verite necklace.
Verite appeals to a more esoteric customer.




If one takes a considered choice in picking a jewelry for purchase,
what would you recommend for them to start with?

The vintage initial necklace in whatever letter holds the most meaning to them
because it's a piece they'll never take off and wear close to their heart.
Currently, I'm wearing mine on the 30" chain and it makes
everything I'm wearing look that much more chic.
