Re the thread about Paula's "ojime" necklace, and the Haskell-ish charm necklaces - both of these share those molded composition beads with Japanese motifs.

Like the layered lacquer Japanese ojime-style beads, cloisonne, cinnabar, Japanese glass beads - combined into touristy or costume jewelry far from their place of manufacture?

After all, look at all the "oriental" necklaces created in the 1990s by Judith Ubick and many other, using beads shipped far from their place of origin.
