21 x 13 mm Pewter Bead with IHD: 2.7mm
With a long history in Japan, Kokeshi dolls were symbols of both children, a mother’s love, and, during times of hardship, loss. Using the spirit of the Kokeshi doll, Cynthia has created a beautiful pewter bead showcasing a little girl cuddling her cat...both with their Cheshire smiles. Because the hole on this bead is vertically placed, it would make a wonderful centerpiece with tassel ends. Carefully crafted in Asheville, North Carolina by wife-and-husband team, Cynthia and Greg, Green Girl Studios pewter pieces are a blend of tin, antimony, and copper.
