Ordering Details

Download and print the Ojime Miseru Sizing Guide, then measure the size (height) of your ojime by matching it against the outlines.

Each size Ojime Miseru will hold all smaller sizes (heights) of ojime. Ojime with a smaller diameter himotoshi (cord hole) may require a custom made Ojime Miseru.

The sterling silver Ojime Miseru adapters are now shipped with white-gold split-rings, which have a greater tensile strength, and keep their spring tension longer, for more security.

Prices are subject to change in case of dramatic changes in the fine metals market.

Please Note: Ojime are a fairly specific Japanese bead. These beads are strung on thick woven cord, hence their relatively large center hole. While the Ojime Miseru might work with some beads from other cultures, it is designed primarily for Japanese ojime beads. Other beads meant to be hung on wire or string usually have holes too small to accept an Ojime Miseru. For beads with small center holes, you might want to consult a jeweler for a custom post or ring.
