This is an accessory made with epoxy resin and mainly created by sisters Yukiko and Mikako Tamaru.
These original accessories are made primarily from transparent resin parts with a combination of natural stones,
glass beads, felt, and ribbon. One of the same designs looks slightly different because each one is handcrafted.
Our concept is to create different designs and pieces that we would want to wear them,
and people of all ages can perceive the beauty that lies beyond the accessory itself.

Bio

Born in Tokyo.
Grew up doing crafts such as knitting and sewing from a young age, partly due to parents who loved working with their hands.

In 1995, while my older sister was working as an office worker and my little sister as a stylist, we began making our own accessories as a hobby using Swarovski and glass beads. During that time, we started wanting beads with our own hues, shapes, floral patterns, and stripes.
It wasn't until we thought of making them ourselves that we began making our own with epoxy resin.
Afterwards, our products started selling in select shops and variety stores across the country.
