Today Beadsaholic brings a review of Argo Studios Japanese Carp!
Japanese Carp from Argo Studios is one of the most beautiful artful beads I’ve seen with two carps swimming and blowing bubbles along with ripples of water flowing around each carp. Japanese Carp are also known as Koi and are well known around the world. Nothing more beautiful than watching these colorful fish swim around in a pond. The Koi Carps are a symbol of luck and prosperity.
Argo Studios Japanese Carp is a stunning bead that I knew I needed from first sight. It is an open-works design that measures approximately 14.86 mm high x 19.97 mm wide and weighs 5.2 grams. Japanese Carp retails for $109 / €114.89 / DKK 858, prices in Europe reflect vat.
Easiest way to show the details of this bead all the way around is by video! So here we go..
I really love the Argo Studios Japanese Carp with Spiritbeads Japanese silvers and Chronicles Ambers on a Trollbeads Foxtail chain with the Lace lock.
The Japanese Carp fit in well with the Trollbeads Kimono Glass beads, Spiritbeads Japanese themed silvers, Spiritbeads monogrammed Star Barrel, Redbalifrog Bubble Stopper on a Trollbeads Foxtail with the Butterfly Lock.
Another fun composition is Argo Studios Japanese Carp with Chronicles Ambers, Aqua Handmade & Gifts flower beads, Redbalifrog Frangipani Stoppers, Trollbeads Baby Breath on a Trollbeads Twisted Bangle.
Now for a cool dip into a beautiful bed of sea glass with Argo Studios Japanese Carp and Sticks & Stones Amazonite Matte Wheels and matte grey hematite on a Trollbeads Twisted Bangle.
Overall, this is such a fun bead to play with and is perfect for spring and summer compositions! I’m a bit obsessed with Argo Studios beads, I love her designs, the matte finish is a delight to work with and shows all the details of the bead.
