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.

Hotaru glass necklaces using sleek black chain


18mm Hotaru beads are a mesmerizing beauty. The strong presence will surely attract the interest of people around you.

There are two kinds of necklaces using this size, a simple one bead style and a dress up style with faceted cut beads.

The chain color is called gunmetal.  Recommended for ladies who like black colored clothes. Both types are very easy to adjust the length.

These go well with a variety of clothes like dresses, turtlenecks, and shirts.

You won't find these kinds of designs often in Okinawa. It's a good idea to get it before you go on a trip to Okinawa.
