BIzu was created in 2021 by Mihana Johnston, the Honolulu-born artist who now resides in Los Angeles.

Bizu looks to childhood fantasy and the natural world’s ecosystems to create nontraditional, intricately-designed jewellery. Each piece mimics the colour and forms of sea life creatures, underwater plants and organisms, and large scale rainforests.

The necklaces are constructed from a unique combination of locally sourced glass seed beads, natural pearls, and removable embellishments, drawing us closer to the natural world and our inner selves.
