About Rurimoharimo

The word 'rurimoharimo' translates roughly as 'lapis lazuli and glass' - the concept being that both of these things shine beautifully when combined together.

All Rurimoharimo's accessories are made from sea glass found locally on the beaches of Oita prefecture. With each piece handmade and one of its kind, the parts used to make earrings, clips, etc. are made of materials that are gentle on the skin. 

Transforming discarded sea glass into unique accessories that shimmer in the sun, these items make for truly charming souvenirs.
