Turtle with Lotus Pod boxwood Ojime bead measures 1 inch wide and 5/8 inch high and vertically-drilled.
Hand-carved boxwood ojime bead inspired by the antique Japanese Ojime. Ojime beads carved from boxwood are the sliding beads on the cord of the Inro Box. Geishas carried an Inro Box to hold their money and personal necessities.
This Ojime bead was hand-carved by a contemporary Chinese Master-Carver (not a child), who took up to as long as four hours to make it. This ojime bead is an unbelievable value for such craftsmanship.
