Announcement: The arrival and birth of Nymph; my new jewelry creation.

; – noun one of a numerous class of lesser deities of mythology, conceived of as beautiful maidens inhabiting the sea, rivers, woods, trees, mountains, meadows etc.

Hence, the word chosen for the collection of jewelry I have designed and created. 



Not without technical and otherwise, assistance and guidance from my adorable sister, however;  thank god for Celeste.The formal announcement goes something like this:

Boston- Matsu owner Dava Muramatsu announces the debut of her new line of jewelry, Nymph.

Specially designed by Dava (that's me. ) Nymph is a tribal inspired collection  of necklaces, bracelets and earrings made from precious and semi-precious stones, vintage gold, silver, beads and relics. The Nymph collection evokes sacred ethnic pieces worn to adorn, protect and invoke sensual and spiritual elements.

The stones in the collection are from tones of the earth: emeralds, pearls, and diamonds both raw and refined, along with labradorite, Afghan black, deep green and emerald jade, spinel, smokey topaz, , 18k gold nuggets accenting muted tones of heishi carved beads.. Each stone, bead and relic has a sensuality to it. some are hand carved, some rough hewn or raw.  I have combined these beads, and stones, most of which are very subtle in appearance  to the naked eye, into what I would love to think as being visually compelling into strikingly sophisticated designs that I feel to be romantic, organic and sexy. Not to mention a bit eccentric.



I created Nymph out of a desire to express feelings through jewelry that were unavailable. I scouted, searched and found vintage metals, stones, and findings from sources from Japan, Europe, Afghanistan, and India. Each piece is unique and one of a kind created by my instincts, my intuition and my inner soul. I find this collection to be contemporary with history. Ancient with a slight fresh provocativeness.

The Nymph collection will be available  at Matsu the week of September 10th. 2009.  I look forward to your visit to view this collection and all the rest of our new arrivals for Autumn.

Yours in joy,

Dava Muramatsu
