Very cool find Mermaid! So this was an old style TB OOAK, correct? Definitely a perfect match to your Tibet beads! I wonder if they had other stylized Chinese character OOAKs.... Excited

What a wonderful find.
My DH has just looked over my shoulder and said 'oh that's nice' at your tibet combo, then he said 'especially that bead' (your new one)

Wow, that is praise indeed, it takes a lot to get him excited about beads Wow
I think it's great too.

Nice one...I will be on the lookout too. It is a very bad habit reading this forum. It gets me in trouble. Although, I will never call it Fire ant since I have to deal with the darn things everyday in my garden. Razz

But as I wrote, the symbol on my bead is a very stylized version...



It looks Japanese/Chinese Kanji. I think it's 喜 symbol of joy,happiness,maybe longevity.

Great find!

I really love your bracelet. I wish there were more "ethnic" beads to collect. I have about five longevity beads.....its one my all time favorite beads. Most of my beads are robin egg blue with the symbol in brown, and I have one pink with the symbol in glitter and one periwinkle blue...so, I totally get your "need" to go back and pick up the bead when you saw it in the window....
