The Nozomi Project was created by missionaries in 2012, in the city of Ishinomaki in Japan following the tsunami that hit in 2011. Fifty percent of the city was destroyed. Check out the video below!
“Nozomi women are creating one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry featuring broken pieces of pottery left in the wake of the tsunami (called the Shards of Hope product line), as well as other beautiful products such as kimono accessories. Each of our product lines has been named by a Nozomi woman in honor of a loved one in her life” (Nozomi Project-About Us)Above photos Copyright Nozomi Project.
