James makes everything by hand using only different gauged precious metal wires and fine gemstones. He uses innovative weaving techniques to trap the stones in place so that no heat, solder or adhesive is used.
During the production process, James practices True Buddhism and chants Daimoku while working to ensure each piece is created thoughtfully and with positivity. All MNDFLMTLS pieces are created in James’ home studio.
