Much smaller than those circular dragon/phoenix beads with the slotted holes -

measures about 25x30mm, or about an inch and 1.25 inches.

Decided not to clean off the patina on the copper - the colors are more apparent uninterrupted by shiny little bits of metal.

I really like this little thing, and now don't feel so bad about the price.

Speaking of prices, remember that string of cloisonne beads with Japanese enamel and designs, on red inro cord?

Going through my pic files, I found one from an eBay auction a couple of months ago - the darned thing went for $80. Criminy. Obviously I'm doing this wrong, LOL!
