Pictures and videos from the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in Japan have dominated the media this week. Unfathomable destruction, incomprehensible loss, collective heartache.

Art shines a light in the darkest of times. By highlighting the work of these Japanese jewelers, we honor their strength in the face of struggle and offer our hope for healing and peace in the days and months ahead.

Many of the jewelers that follow exhibit their work at the galleries Deux Poissins and Mido in Tokyo.
