annon【アンノン】は漆のジュエリーブランドです
私は漆自体にすごく強い力があると感じてます
古より祭祀の装身具や副葬品としての歴史が残っており
塗り重ねるほどに強靭になる塗面、
また触れるとかぶれること−
その観点から、破邪や穢れを祓う神事の道具に使われたのでしょう
そして昔の人は漆の力を敬い信じていたんだと思います
無論、私もその一人です
その力強さと古代の漆の装身具達に魅了されてannonを始めました


Coquettish・Elegance・Luxuryをポリシーに
女性が美しく見えること、着けた時に都市の空気や表情と調和するような
繊細なデザインを目指しております

“annon” is a jewelry brand of Japanese lacquer (called “urushi” in Japanese).
Urushi is believed to have a strong power.
It had been used as ritual accessories and grave goods since ancient times.
Urushi is coated repeatedly to make firm layers.One can get poison ivy from touching it.
Therefore, ancient people admired the power of urushi and believed that it could defeat evil and purify them.
The one who firmly believes so is me.

Because its powerfulness and aged accessories fascinated me, I started “annon.”
“Coquettish,” “Elegance,” and “Luxury,” make the person look more beautiful and harmonize with urbanity.
This is “annon,” with the refined design I created.
