Sama Necklace



This pendant is made of cast bronze and features hand woven glass beads. It hangs from a bronze chain. Handmade in Portland, Oregon.

Oru combines handwoven Japanese glass beads with minimalist metal shapes. Oru is the verb 'to weave' in Japanese, and each piece of jewelry exemplifies this ancient craft. On one side of the studio, they meditatively weave glass seed beads to create a delicate beaded fabric, and on the other, they work on the metal frames with saw-blade, torch, and file. 

Dimensions: pendant is 7/8" x 3/4", necklace is 20"
