OJIME ARE BEADS USED AS A CLOSURE FOR JAPANESE MEDICINE POUCHES FROM THE TIME OF THE SHOGUNS. THEY ARE ELABORATE, MADE OF IVORY, OR WOOD, CLOISENNÉ OR METAL AND ARE USUALLY THEMATICALLY DERIVED FROM THE NATURAL WORLD. I FIRST ENCOUNTERED THEM STRUNG TOGETHER AS A CINCTURE OF 90. IT WAS THE EARLY 70’S WHEN I WAS JUST OUT OF ART SCHOOL. THEIR PERFECTION AND TINY SIZE GAVE ME THE OOMPH TO CONTINUE ARTWORK. WHEN I BEGAN WRITING IN 2001 I MADE 90 STORIES AS AN HOMAGE TO THE INSPIRATION OF OJIME.
