Bead of the Week

ornate heartsTwo ornate 'puffy' silver heart beads, hollow in the center with holes at top and bottom for stringing. Each is about 1" wide and lightweight. Sold as a set of two. I will consider selling them separately -- so let me know if you'd like to buy only one for $19.00.

skull beadThis exotic carved boxwood bead (approx. 20 mm.) was made in the tradition of Japanese Ojime beads of the 16th century. (See previous  blog post and comments for more fascinating info on Ojime beads.) In Japan, the skull is a positive representation of the natural life cycle. It may also represent change, which makes sense, as death is the greatest change one can experience.
