Sae Honda (born 1987) is a Japanese jeweller / artist based in Japan and the Netherlands.

She graduated from Musashino Art University in Tokyo in 2010, and later studied at Gerrit Rietveld Academie from 2013 to 2016. After completing her studies, she has been internationally showcasing self-initiated works (mainly jewelry and art works) as well as commissioned work. 

 

Questioning the existing value system with her poetic approach, she explores alternative aesthetics this modern life has to offer. Through her practice she formulates fresh perspectives and values, a result of careful observation of the current world where the border between nature and artifact is becoming more and more obscure. 

 

Some of her works are included in the permanent collection of Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.
