Ojime, the small companions of netsuke. They are beads which slide along the two cords that run between the netsuke and the object it is suspending. The ojime slides down toward the top of the bag or lacquer box and thus stops them from accidentally opening. Ojime are carved in the round, but are much smaller than netsuke with their size usually ranging from around 1-2cm. In contemporary times they are often used as pendants.Leigh Sloggett
