Traditional Japanese jewellery comprised of hair ornaments and or single carved beads (known as kitsuke in the west), but necklaces or similar not worn. So, finding Japanese beads can be very difficult – BUT I HAVE! The the large stone ones are specifically for the bottom of wall hangings/scrolls and the others date from the 70’s. The little turquoise ones are hand painted and the white filigree ones and plastic whilst the gold are metal.
Let me know if you come across any others??
