Hotaru Glass Classic Hair Stick with swaying Swarovski crystals

​ Secure purchase from Rakuten, Yahoo! Shopping and more.

A clean style in which a large hotaru bead is directly attached to the hair stick.

Minimum but efficient small decorations on the top using Swarovski crystal beads.

Perfect for women who like hair sticks but don't need hanging decorations.  This style became popular because ladies who wear Japanese traditional outfits desire something simple but beautiful.

Generally, the typical style for glass bead hair sticks is to use a thick stick with a screw head.  They tend to be heavy due to the structure.
I adjusted the bead hole size to match with the thin rod to achieve a slim and light hair stick.

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.

- Midnight Blue (glow in the dark)
The most popular color.  People think of this one when they hear the name "Hotaru Glass".  The deep blue color reminds people of the tropical ocean. The perfect color for memories of the seaside holidays.

- Pink
A cute and gentle color like cherry blossoms or peach petals.
