Onigiri Brick Stitched Earrings


After getting a gift of some wonderful bento supplies including onigiri molds, I decided I needed to make some brick stitched onigiri earrings. Onigiri are tasty rice balls. The black strip on the earring pattern represents the nori strip used to hold it while you eat it.

Example beaded by Pamy Welborn in size 15 seed beads.

Example beaded by me in Delicas.

Because a lot of people think of fish when they think of sushi, I decided to make fish for the "fringe", which led to much merriment as my daughter and I tried to say "Brick stitched fish fringe" 3 times fast.
I've posted instructions for brick stitch here.
You can also find instructions for making earrings in the shape of the sushi earrings in odd count peyote here.

You can find more information about onigiri at our Southeast Asia site.

I use a short grain rice because it's stickier then long grain, and a little extra water to make them. I also don't use traditional fillings. I make them frequently with leftovers that have a lot of flavor. Turkey burgers are a family favorite. If you have a kid who is anti-nori like my youngest is, try the soy wrappers. You can find a great selection of onigiri molds at JBox.com. I've got some nice big triangle molds from them.
The most traditional and the kind used in a lot of anime are the triangle shaped onigiri.
If you are interested in bento lunches, one of my favorite sites is bento tv.
I also posted a printable gift box shaped like an triangle onigiri on my personal webpage.
