Today Beadsaholic brings a review of Niwa Beads latest release.
Niwa Beads has released three new fabulous beads The Balance, BO WE GA and Secret Garden. All three beads are fantastic and The Balance if my favorite, I have loved this bead since I first saw photos on Niwa Beads Facebook, and I must say all three beads are even more beautiful in person.
Niwa Beads The Balance is a male and female Koi Yin Yang with Moonstone on one side and Black-star Sapphire on the other. Also, notice that the Koi’s are different on each side. This beautiful bead is limited-edition and only one-hundred (100) pieces were made. The Balance measures approximately 14.43 mm high x 15.43 mm, weighs 11.5 grams and retails for €99.

“In a rural community, there is a small community with interesting cultures and traditions. “BO WE GA” Is a wood carved from bamboo, in the part that is used is The roots attached to the stem of the bamboo tree. Carved into a man’s face or face of an ancestor who has passed away. People in the community are popular for BO WE GA on the occasion. Weddings, new born children, new homes, or survived big accidents. In addition, it helps maintain balance for Nature and help to create peace with the family as well. Currently, this tradition has already disappeared more than 50 years. (Karen Village, Nongyaplong, Petchaburi, Thailand)”
