About the Designer
Satomi Kawakita is a New York City-based jewelry designer and a former professional diamond setter. She was born and raised in Japan. While growing up, she was strongly influenced by her dress-maker mother, who made most of Satomi’s clothes when she was a little girl. Satomi was fascinated not only by designing, but also by actually creating things herself. This passion led her to Saga Art College in Kyoto, Japan, where she studied wood, metal, clay and textile design/creation.
While in college, she encountered glass-blowing, and after graduating, she worked for the glass artist Takeshi Tsujino for a couple of years. After the glass studio closed down, she taught herself how to make jewelry with glass beads, and she started her own jewelry business and sold her pieces nationwide.
In 2002, she moved to New York City to study jewelry making at the jewelry trade school Studio Jewelers. Following her training, she began working as a diamond setter under the master setter Richard Scandaglia.
In 2008, she launched her own jewelry line, Satomi Kawakita Jewelry. Under her growing jewelry brand, Satomi aspires to create meaningful and timeless pieces that stay true to her unique sense of design. With each beautiful piece of jewelry that comes out of our studio, she is able to bring her vision to life.
