Today is a short blog post to show the sweet little Kokeshi 2.0 from Spiritbeads at Star Bijou. The first Kokeshi doll has the hole going through her vertically, but the 2.0 hole goes through her horizontally. The bead costs €45. There is also the Limited Edition version with the cute hairdo, but I believe that sold out just a couple of days ago.
Here is a video of the 2.0 version.
The three Kokeshis gathered together for a little meeting. I love the smile on their faces!
I used the Trollbeads Blooming Sakura beads with the ladies and added in the Pandora Purple Friendship Bracelet.
The Trollbeads Kimono Kit is always what I think of with the Kokeshi and Daruma, too. On the ends are Trollbeads Pink Prisms and I’ve added in the Silver Sakuras and Maneki-Neko, also from Spiritbeads.
The original Kokeshi fits perfectly on a necklace, in this case one by Spiritbeads. If you hit the Spiritbeads tag on the bottom of my blog there are articles on all of these! When I get back to work in the fall this would be a really fun combo to wear. I absolutely adore these sweet beads. Nicolai at Star Bijou really has a knack for making beads with the sweetest faces. The Lucky Monk and Kokeshi beads convey such a feeling of happiness, even though they are little metal objects. Were you one of the people who purchased the Limited Edition Kokeshi or is the 2.0 version on your radar?
