Japanese Beadwork

While browsing Japanese bead sites, I caught mention of the "ビーズグランプリ", or "Beads Grand Prix". 

Intrigued, I looked for the official site.

The work on there is mind blowing, especially the grand prize winner. 

If you have ever touched a bead, I seriously recommend that you take a look at the above link.

And here are the other years' winners:

I especially love the bag in the 2007 group.


  1. Wow! That is some seriously awesome beadwork! I agree - especially this year's grand prize winner and also the 2007 bag - they are AMAZING!

  2. Aren't they?! The dragon is stunning, but I *need* that bag. The delicate hemp-leaf geometric design in the background sets off the sakura so well.

  3. Did you know that that you can generate cash by locking special sections of your blog or site?
