Pink lamp work glass beads: The meanings and effects.

Updated: Oct 29, 2023

- Before explaining the meanings and effects, I will introduce the pink Osaka Tonbo beads (lamp work beads).

The soft pink Osaka lamp work bead is a particularly recommended color from early spring to early summer.

It is the season when pink flowers are eye-catching. It starts with plums and cherry blossoms, followed by peaches, azaleas, and hydrangeas.

To create this soft pink, I use a rich red glass (Kin Aka glass) with lots of gold in it. I stretch gold-red glass and mix it with translucent milky glass.

A subdued pink that is not flashy looks good on women of all ages. It goes well with the color of the skin, and gives a bright impression.

To make it easier to remember, Takashi gave it the modern name of "Cotton Pink".

- What does pink symbolize as a color?

The color pink symbolizes love, romance, youthfulness, and honesty. Lampwork beads are handmade glass crafts, not natural stones. Since ancient times, it has been believed that lampwork bead has multiple meanings and effects, slightly different from natural stones which are called power stones.

About 30% of the people who purchase Studio Waza's glass jewelries are men, and most of them choose pink or red items. This also shows that pink symbolizes love. Pink color is recommended for improving love luck.

- Meaning and effects as lamp work glass beads

Lamp work beads are made by a technique called lamp work and burner work, which melts glass with a high temperature flame. It is said to give creativity, vitality and possibility because the power of fire is used and formed by human intention.

Not only that, it has been believed since ancient times that sparkling glass has the power to ward off evil spirits, and has been used as a talisman and amulet.

The StudioWAZA artist Takashi makes lamp work beads facing the flames while wishing for the happiness of the future owner. I hope good luck will come to everyone who chose my lamp work glass jewelry!
