‘premium floral’ jewelry for the leica photo camera by jay tsujimura



japanese designer jay tsujimura has conceived the ‘premium floral’ and ‘premium lizard’, a series of elegant adornments for the classic leica. the work is informed by tsujimura’s skill in jewelry design, having acquired traditional techniques and knowledge of historical styles through careful observation of architecture and antique markets. this allowed him to create ornamental additions for the hot shoe and soft release components of the camera with either organic detailing or a distinctive stippled texture, mimicking that of reptilian skin. the customized pieces are a very stylish fashion statement for the leica in tokyo, enhancing the already sophisticated photographic experience.
