"We perform appearance management for the sake of beauty, from dieting to exercise, makeup to cosmetic surgeries and so on," she writes on her site.!collection/c4jn

"Facebook and other social networking services are used to broadcast certain images of self and 'make up' an identity," she continues. But those images are highly manipulated.

Shinzato knows her collection might not be something for, like, EVERY DAY WEAR, but she's interested in using jewelry as a way to manipulate the wearer's look.
