Chief Business Development Department


Pretty & Useful (kawaii to Tsukaeru)

A natural born creator originally from the Philippines, Francis Arcena Arnaiz began to work in Sanjo City in 1997. The city, located in the center of Niigata Prefecture, is legendary in Japan for the creation of top quality metal goods.

Arcena developed his metalworking skills over a 15 + year period under the highly skilled craftsmen of Tsubame and Sanjo cities. Using modern metal processes and specialist techniques, Arcena designed and created a handmade Stiletto Ring Tab Opener. Extremely well crafted, decadent and delightful, his designs offer practical assistance to people with long fingernails and delicate nail art, not to mention seniors who may have difficulty opening beverage can pull-tabs.
