Today Beadsaholic brings a review of the latest Kokeshi from Spiritbeads,
Today sees the debut of the latest Kokeshi Dango from Spiritbeads! This bead is available in all sterling silver and a duo-tone of sterling silver and 14k gold. All silver version is limited to two hundred and twenty-two (222) pieces and retails for €55. Duo-tone is limited to one hundred and eleven (111) pieces and retails for €95, prices include vat.
Dango 🍡 is a sweet Japanese dumpling made from mochiko served on a skewer. Both Kokeshi designs are the same except the duo-tone has 14k gold dango, as seen in the photos below and the silver has silver dango. This Kokeshi is wearing a beautifully designed kimono and has cute detailing in her hair. Each bead measures approximately 15.93 mm high x 9.22 mm wide.
I had fun creating a few Asian themes with this Kokeshi and some beautiful PHYA Jewelry and Trollbeads. I went with Gold PHYA to highlight the gold dango the Kokeshi is holding.
Overall, this is a cute design and should make all the Kokeshi collectors happy! This bead will match all the previously released Kokeshi doll beads.
If you would like to order this design you may do so at the following links. Both offer vat free shopping for those outside Europe.
