Hand-carved boxwood modern ojime bead inspired by the antique Japanese Ojime.  Ojime are the sliding beads on the cord of the Inro Box.  Geishas carried an Inro Box to hold their money and personal necessities.  An Ojime bead is a Japanese bead or geisha bead that was used with an inro box and a netsuke bead.

This Lucky Cat Ojime bead was carved by a contemporary Chinese Master-Carver (not a child), who took up to as long as four hours to make it.  This bead is 3/4 inch wide and 1 inch high and vertically-drilled.  You could also describe it as a Hello Kitty bead.  This is an unbelievable value for such craftsmanship.
