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.

 

This is a necklace featuring a motif of a bird created by bending cut tin plates into a three-dimensional shape. Each piece is handcrafted, so there may be slight variations in size and shape. Since it is made from a very soft metal, please take extra care, especially regarding potential deformations, such as in the tail feathers.

 

・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.

 

・About the care of this product

If you are worried about the colour dullness, add a small amount of water to the baking soda powder.
