Tether is a California based body piercing jewelry brand founded and designed by Paul Shinichi in 2014. After serving the body piercing industry for the past 18 years as a senior piercer, he transitioned his creative focus to developing and creating jewelry pieces. By applying the experience and knowledge he has gained from the industry, he infuses his awareness as an artist and musician into his creations.
The brand was made as an experiment to glimpse into a future unknown. Tether is inspired by a passion for machines, science fiction and architecture. With each piece of jewelry we hope to take you on a journey to A Different Future, to An Other Reality.
