Ojime Bead Bangle – day 260

Posted on Mar 16, 2012 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

I find this piece organic, no clasp, all from natural materials and very much Asian inspired with the Ojime Bead as the focal point.  Ojime Beads are miniature hand carved animals originally carved out of ivory in China.  Each bead is carved by master carvers and they sign each bead.  What can I say except it is a very cool thing:)


The frog is a symbol of abundance, fertility and incredible transformations!  For those of us who wants to reinvent ourselves, the frog is great symbolism.
