This is a tin accessory brand launched by Katsura Otera, originally from Tokyo and formerly a product designer for a major electronics manufacturer specializing in designing mobile phones and PCs. In 2016, Katsura married Kota, the 6th generation of a copperware wholesale business established in 1860 in Takaoka City, Toyama Prefecture. During her time at art college, she had experience in studying metalwork, and this is why she became captivated by the unique charm of tin while helping with the family business.

 

 

It is a simple square pierced using tin.

The design highlights the "ihada" texture, formed during casting, with its uneven and textured surface that results in a captivating interplay of light, creating a sparkling effect.

The pierced earrings are attached a little lower, and the earrings are a little upper, which depends on the position of the hole. Please refer to the photo.

There are also slanted-shaped types and small types.

 

・About tin...

Tin is a metal that is hard to oxidise and rust. High purity tin is very soft, and thin ones can be processed by hand with scissors. You can enjoy the gentle texture and colour that is different from the silver material.

Because harmful substances are difficult to dissolve, it is used as a safe material, and it is also used for tableware because there is no smell peculiar to metal. ※Some people are allergic to tin.

Depending on the age, it will change to a one-tone calm colour.
