At this bijou workshop and store located a quick stroll from the Nakameguro riverside, local brand Vivify creates what it calls ‘urban craft jewellery’: predominantly silver accessories with a distinctly handmade feel. The natural wood-lined atelier and shop space has a counter spanning most of one wall, behind which a jewellery maker can often be observed at work. Outside, a terrace complete with seating and cacti offers space to relax and contemplate your purchase.
Silver aside, Vivify’s designs also utilise other materials including gold, glass, stones and beads, with the collection encompassing earrings, body piercings, rings, bangles, bracelets and more. Rings start at around ¥5,500, with necklaces ranging from a couple of thousand to about ¥50,000.
