Pink Flower and Dragonfly Square Bead sra

Thank you for your looking at my bead. I am a Japanese glass bead artist, Ayako Hattori living in Nagoya City, Japan.
This is ‘Tonbodama,’ Japanese style lampwork bead. "Tonbodama" loosely translates to "dragonfly eyes" in English.
Approximate size of bead is 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm x 2.0 cm. The hole size is 13 mm x 5.5 mm.
The square bead is originally Obidome, ornament for Japanese kimono belt. But I often use it as pendant through cord made of leather, antique fabric or braided rope. This type of bead has big hole, so I can change string easily.
The beads are made of Japanese Satake glass. This glass has very soft and subtle colors with a low melting point.
Please take a moment and look at the delicate color and designs of my bead. Two kinds of pink flower bloom and butterflies are flying around them. Such beauty can only be found in Japanese Tonbodama! I am proud to sell the bead outside Japan. As with all handcrafted items, no two are alike (although similar).

Shipping and handling costs $8.00 US to everyone. It is not cheap, but the price includes postal tracking system and limited insurance of Japanese postal service. The limit of the insurance is 6000 yen, about 60US$.

Would you please ask me any questions in easy English.
