Hot summer has arrived and I do hope that everyone is faring well in this heat. This year the weather with heavy rainfalls has brought many disastrous damages throughout Japan. Kyushu area was heavily stricken the most. My heartfelt empathy goes out to the people affected by this disaster and prayer is said for speedy recovery. For the exhibition at the Matsuzakaya Art Museum held from September 9th, the production of the atelier has entered full speed. It is a retrospective exhibition displaying about 500 works from 1980 to the present. We are looking forward to seeing many familiar faces but also look forward to seeing those who are unfamiliar with jewelry and those who do not yet know Gimel, so please have a look (for details, please go to the page of TOPICS) We are at the beginning of summer and gradually the heat will rise to a true hot sizzling summer. According to the forecast, the heat for this summer is particularly tough. I wish you all well to weather this hot summer season.
