Boxwood is a small tree and shrub. Due to the limited size of the material, it is rarely used for full-sized pieces of furniture, but more often for small, carved objects or as decorative inlay. Boxwood is very durable and dense and its fine even texture makes it especially suitable for carving. Because of its extremely small vessel cells, the texture is exceptionally smooth and fine, and the surface polishes to a silky luster.
This amazing bead is delicately hand carved out of the finest boxwood by skilled Netsuke carvers and is individually signed. Each bead is unique and spectacular in its own way. The detailing is exquisitely executed down to the tiniest of details. The eyes are obsidian inlays. It is a three-dimensional bead that leaps out into the open space beyond. From any angle this bead is truly extraordinary. This rare bead will add personality to your custom piece! Don't miss out on this astonishing bead!!!!
