Beautiful Glass Float Green Japanese Ohajiki Cuff

240.00

I love all pieces of Ohajiki, but I am most drawn to the ones that appear to have been made with the same glass used for blowing Japanese glass fishing floats. As a long time beachcomber, searching the shores for these floats, wearing one of these pieces of "matching" Ohajiki makes me feel connected to the sea and the thrill of the search. 

Set in sterling silver with a beaded bezel on an heavy gauge and very solid sterling silver cuff. This piece is a "twin" piece with #897.

This beautiful piece is likely 80-100 years old and still has visible green crosshatched lines from the original glass stamp. Ohajiki is a Japanese children’s game. The pieces are round in shape and flat, with markings made by the individual glassblowers who made the pieces. Some show a cross-hatch pattern, others straight lines, and the rarest ones have symbols or numbers pressed into the glass. Each piece is decidedly unique and only found in Japan. The game is still played, but the pieces I use are quite old, most date from 80-100 years in age. This game was often played at festival that were held along the beach. Since this game is played on a table, where pieces could have easily fallen into the sand, many pieces were likely lost during festive play. Now, nearly 100 years later, they have been tumbled by the sea and frosted by years in the sand. Each piece is genuine Ohajiki, found in Japan, and set in fine and sterling silver.

This piece fits a small - medium wrist.

Each piece of Sea and Sky Studio jewelry is made using genuine surf-tumbled sea glass and is created using solid gold and silver by me, by hand, in my studio. Each piece is a true labor of love. I have done my best to carefully photograph each piece show its true color, but please allow for some shift as sea glass reflects what is around it as well as color shifts due to monitor differences. Thank you for considering my work for your collection!
