A new collaboration with the premium brand PREMICO (that brings traditional crafts from all over Japan) has collaborated with the Sailor Moon Cosmos movies to create a collection of exclusive goods. The first release is a silver pendant made with the traditional craft of hirado zaiku (silver filigree) and will be begin pre-orders this May 16th on the PREMICO website.
Hirado-zaiku is a silverwork technique that twists an extra-fine silver wire with of a fraction of a millimeter to create a lace-like openwork pattern. It’s a traditional craft that was introduced from the Netherlands to Hirado in Nagasaki in the Edo period and developed by polishing the Japanese aesthetic. Hirado Zaiku has a history of 400 years and with the Sailor Moon Cosmos movies have come together to turn the Silver Crystal into gorgeous sparkling jewelry.
The Silver Crystal is superimposed with silverwork and blooms three-dimensionally. The outer petals are decorated with gorgeous openwork, and the inner petals are decorated with delicate openwork patterns.
At the center of the Silver Crystal is a cubic zirconia placed to further complement the shine of pure silver.
PREMICO is planning to release more original items in collaboration with traditional crafts in the fall of 2023.
