Little Mermaid


A hand carved Ojime mermaid bead serves as the main attraction on this panel. It is surrounded by colorful wooden beads, as well as bone and glass beads.

The little mermaid - a fabled symbol of beauty. Youthful and with spry elegance, it lives amid a still largely unexplored oceanic environment. There are many stories of myth and fascination with mermaids. Perhaps they arose from a secret desire to become enshrouded by mystery?

But there is no need for fairy tales when it comes to women of our world. All women possess a natural affinity for being somewhat mysterious. And all women are beautiful.

Ojime beads originated in Japan. Always intricately carved, they are worn traditionally on a cord between the inro and netsuke.
