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.

It is a small and cute hairpin.  Since it's smaller than regular kanzashi, mother and daughter can share it.  Just use this on your up-hairstyle and it will give you a very elegant atmosphere.

This is designed for adults, but children can use it for special events.  It's nice to give this as a gift to a child with the wish, "Please use it even when you grow up to be a beautiful lady."  It's useful when you want to use more than two hair sticks, or when you don't need a large hair decoration.
