Luminous shell pierced earrings “Shizuku” that shine in indigo cloth
A jewelery necklace of turbomarmoratus that gives off a fantastic light with gorgeous colors. Luminous shellfish is a large snail that lives in warm seas such as Kagoshima and Okinawa. Although it is a very delicious shell for food, it has a beautiful mother-of-pearl inside the shell and has long been prized as a material for ornaments. This luminous shell is also used for the decoration of the Raden on the treasure of Shosoin.
In Amami, the turbomarmoratus has been loved for a long time and is a familiar existence. From the desire to make accessories that look beautiful on indigo cloth, we value the blessings of nature. I asked for production.
The luminescent shells, which are carefully polished one by one, shine mysteriously like drops dripping from the night sky of Amami when matched with indigo clothes, creating an impressive design.
