For this bracelet, tiny tear-like shapes are sprinkled onto a gold-plated brass chain. The water-like drops are handmade in Japan by skilled artisans through a process that involves melting glass with a torch. Once the glass is in a molten state, it is formed by blowing and shaping with tools and hand movements. The Little Tears Water Drops Glass Bracelet is produced by Hario, a 100-year-old company with its own factory in Japan—the only place in the country that produces heatproof glass. This durable material has a strong resistance to temperature change and excellent durability against chemicals and shock. The brand was known for producing glass coffeemakers and science instruments before it began manufacturing jewelry. The Hario Little Tears Glass Bracelet measures 7.5”l and the chain is adjustable.
