    Taking advantage of the collective wealth of knowledge of the artisans of Izumi – the group who first created artificial pearls in Japan – we designed “Gravity pearls” for HK (pronounced haku). The magnets embedded within the artificial pearls allow it to transform from a necklace to an earring, to a ring and to a broach.

HK GRAVITY PEARL
Taking advantage of the collective wealth of knowledge of the artisans of Izumi – the group who first created artificial pearls in Japan – we designed “Gravity pearls” for HK (pronounced "haku"). The magnets embedded within the artificial pearls allow it to transform from a necklace to an earring, to a ring and to a broach. Coming together to resemble a cluster of bubbles, the pearls stand alone, not as copies, but as a unique product, proud of its artificiality.

新しい人造真珠のブランド「 HK(ハク)」のブランディングと商品共同開発を行いました。大阪府和泉市では古来からのガラス産業と共に、人造真珠が伝統産業として育まれてきました。その職人の技術を生かし開発した"Gravity Pearl "は、磁石を真珠の核とすることで、互いに磁力で引き寄せ合う真珠です。泡のような集合体となり、ネックレス、指輪、ブローチ、イヤリングなどへ自由に変化します。
