Collaboration of Hotaru beads and Osaka Cotton pearls.


These earrings are made with Hotaru beads which were carefully selected by the artist Takashi. Cotton pearls were originally invented in Osaka. These hanging cotton pearls bounce lightly and give a fun impression.

Sterling silver hooks are used.(SLV925) Recommended for ladies who use silver earrings on a daily basis. This earring hook is one of the common sizes sold at jewelry shops. (If you prefer a bit smaller hooks, please choose the earrings using 14K gold filled hooks.)​

These 12mm beads are larger than the average size of earrings sold at shops such as Kokusai Street in Okinawa. If you seek a gorgeous presence, these ones are the best.

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.

Recommended for people:

- who like beaches and remote islands.
- who want to feel like they are on a tropical vacation.
- who want to share their memories of the sea with others.
- who couldn't find good souvenirs at a beach resort.
- who want to give cool Japanese gifts to non-Japanese.

Why are Studio Waza accessories so popular?

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.


Since these beads are handmade, the patterns and sizes are unique.  Most metal parts used are from Kiwa Seisakujo and Parts Club, major jewelry material suppliers in Japan.
