Gleichenia is a contemporary jewelry project brought to you by the creative studio KEWYA in Tokyo.
The name Gleichenia derives from the Gleichenia japonica, a type of evergreen fern that grows in the mountain forests of Japan and has been used as a New Year’s decoration since the ancient era. It is regarded as a symbol of purity and longevity.
Through applying classic techniques to modern digital fabrication in collaboration with local artisans and engineers, We create a crossover between art and design. We deliver jewelry that enriches your daily life whilst creating new values and enabling boundless ideas.
We find expressions in jewelry that is not bound by origin, age, gender or existing values.
KEWYA is a creative studio based in Tokyo which was formed by an artist and designer duo. Engaged in a wide range of initiatives such as graphic design, editorial design, photography and other forms of communicative design, art work and exhibits, we are constantly questioning ourselves on what is "art" and "design". Gleichenia is the first collaborative project by the duo. We design jewelry and manage the online shop.
