Hotaru Glass beads are popular as a souvenir from Okinawa along with Ryukyu glass. They are the same as the Tonbo glass beads made by Takashi Hirose, and are artisan glass crafts.  Glass is melted with a burner using skillful techniques to create beautiful beads with many layers. The method of making is called burner work or lamp work.  Venetian glass beads are made in the same way.  The feature is that silver leaves are put in the beads during firing, so they reflect light and sparkle.

Unisex Hotaru glass Kimono Jacket decoration

The popular Hotaru glass is made into a stylish haori string decoration. (for kimono jackets) There are very few artists who make kimono accessories made of Hotaru glass. This is definitely something rare.

The length is 19cm long, which is the average unisex haori string length.

In addition to the sparkle of the Hotaru beads, the small Swarovski crystal glass beads slide around and bring more shine and luxurious feel.

Using large lobster hooks which are easy to handle.


All Hotaru beads of this size I use are all "glow in the dark" types. It stores sunlight and glows like a firefly after sunset. It's very romantic.
