Eiji Uemura was born in Minamiise-town,which is known as a perfect place for cultured pearl.He grew up in the surrounding of pearls and finally succeeded his father’s pearl business.

Revolution
Uemura maki-e pearls are made by producer instead of designer.
He believes that pearls have much possibilities to show their unique splendor.
For this reason, although he was a producer, he tried to communicate with consumers face to  face.
The sincere efforts are worthy of so many up-to-date designs , and those designs exiled the invariable designs for jewelry.

Evolution
Encounter with Japanese tradition
He searched for a ideal decoration for his pearls from those Japanese tradition materials for years and finally got what he want. 
By applying the gifts from the mountain, such as bamboo and maki-e lacquer, to his pearls, he succeed in merging the art of the mountain and the sea into a irreplaceable harmony.
