A mother of stone: Amanda Mitsuri
After a long hiatus of this Women Talk Episode, we started to collect piece by piece of its souls by finding our next icon to tell their stories. 94.1 miles apart with significant changes in humidity and chance of rain fall, we’ve finally talked to Amanda Mitsuri, the master mind behind jewelry brand that named after stone, Massicot. With our little collaboration in crafting TTA x Massicot Brooch which inspired by TTA new birth: The Face Palette, we have some more. It’s both of our talk and upcoming project that soon will be announced!
My jewelry brand is Massicot, a brand named after a stone in the medieval era. Massicot is a multifunction and everlasting stone for its use, and I want to interpret this name into a brand that lasts forever and always explore new things.
Talking about jewelry, in my point of view, we as women from the east have this sense of “fear of empty” which shapes the non-existence of minimalist concept in our culture. This makes jewelry as an important accessory and somehow speaks louder about the identity and statement of the user.
It comes from my daily routine. I always spare 1 hour a day to collect new things; from morning walk, reading books or simply watch interesting videos on Youtube.
Every year is a new trend for jewelry. Four years ago, people were crazy over earrings and today, they find that brooch and earpiece as “a thing”. For me, all Massicot’s products represent all women’s character; from feminine to unique individual. Product that marks a highscore? The statement jewelry I guess.
I love watching people’s skincare routine! Who doesn’t want healthy skin! Hehe
INSTAGRAM = ENSIKLOPEDIA OF EVERYTHING.
Serum, foundation, They Talk About’s The Face Palette (IT’S A MUST) and They Talk About’s matte lipquid in Sandstone mix with Marsala!
It’s a natural habit since I was a kid. I don’t know if it’s a gift or curse haha, I really love working. When it comes to motherhood, there was a start, a transition that overwhelms me somehow. Being a mother is the next level, but as time goes by, it’s all about our perspective and how we conquer our desire and ambition inside us. Now I’m no longer talking about
success but appreciate more in the process. And remember, baby step is okay!
To be honest, there are tons of plans this year! From workshop, Massicot’s branching, Massicot’s new collection that will be released on April and Massicot first zine print! I know I
want a lot of things hahaha.
Yes! We are human, despite the fact that there are men and we were born as women, what matter is our will to do something. I’m happy to see women working in dynamic circumstances, active and become an expert at their job.
Women should feed their brain with knowledge, always. If women can stand for herself, smart and know what to do, they will be “the light” for themselves and others and things will be easier for her and whoever around them. Definitely.
Lazy people. For me, people who appreciate time are the ones who invest their life in a good way, but these lazy people? They don’t know how to be thankful for the time being given to them. Time is money and it’s real.
IT DOES MATTER! Ahahaha the fact that horoscope is a science, so basically it is a research.
But it’s not a 100% match from one person to another, because early life factor around family could affect human growth. Learning deeper about horoscope teaches me not to easily hate a person, I learn that it’s their natural habits and attitude, and I find that a lot of people
have unique attitude! So I tend to blame the sign not the person hahaha
Hmm ok, be a dependable one! <3
