A chilly winter night.
One lightning bolt struck the ancient battlefield.

After dead silence….
A skeleton wearing an old armor rose up from the snow.
His white bone finger grabbed a rusting katana that was struck by his body and pulled it out. He started to walk slowly.
For vengeance. To kill the enemy who betrayed him.

The Ghost Samurai raises!

Ghost Samurai Pendant consists sterling silver and Urushi.
Urushi is a kind of natural lacquer that is collected from the Urushi tree.
It is an ancient craft that dates back to 7000 BC, the Jomon period of Japan. It is a very rare natural material that can only be collected at a rate of one glass per tree. It is twice as valuable as silver.
It is both heat and acid-resistant. Moreover, it retains its shape for thousands of years.
Ultraviolet rays are Urushi’s only weakness.
Samurai armor makers used Urushi because it is weatherproof and rust-proof.

 As an Urushi artisan, I want to revive Urushi culture and spread it around the world once more.
I believe Urushi art is an incredibly beautiful art format, but it has gone into decline in Japan recently. Before its decline, Urushi art was known throughout the world.
I hope that my high-quality products will reinvigorate Urushi art. That is my passion and lifetime goal.

Risks and challenges

A major risk is a time because the traditional lacquering process is very complex. But I've done some KICKSTARTER projects successfully, so you will get your rewards on time.

If you like this project, please take a look other Urushi arts--you may love them.
If there are any delays or problems, I will keep my backers up to date with regular updates.
