What is Kotoba?

言葉 ( ことば ) -  kotoba


Kotoba is a Japanese word which means language and words.

Kotoba Jewellery


Like words of a written language, my jewellery is my language;

it is like the words of stories I want to share.


It is my passion to create jewellery that expresses myself,

to share my views with the world : to connect and empower one another. 


Hoi Yi

Every piece is handmade.

Capturing the time and love of the maker, treasured within each piece.



Each Kotoba Jewellery piece is handmade and designed by Hoi Yi Lai.

Through crafting each piece by hand, every piece is unique. The soul and essences of the maker is something that cannot be replicated in mass-produced items.
