Bali Carved Beads
We took advantage of Bali's legendary carvers by coming out with our own line of Ojime-inspired beads and pendants.
Ojime originated in Japan and were designed to work in conjunction with netsuke to allow Japanese to hang items from a sash around their kimono. These ojime served an everyday function, but were extensively carved and decorated. In their day, people surely made fashion statements through their ojime. It is their beauty that explains why ojime are collected today by so many individuals.
Many ojime beads available today are reproductions of antique ojime; others are original works inspired by the tradition. Few are actually made in Japan. Check them out!
