Bayong is a hardwood that grows in the Philippines. It is durable, making it long wearing and suitable for jewelry. The natural color is a warm red-brown, with a lovely wood grain pattern that can be easily seen, but you'll find some variation from light to dark red-brown shades. The cut here is really unique, as if someone took their fingers to a piece of clay and pinched it right in the middle. In this way, no two beads are exactly alike, so please allow for some variation in the cut. Lightweight and very smooth to the touch, these particular beads have an understated polish which allows them to retain a very natural and organic appearance. You'll see a soft sheen from the wood as the beads are rolled around in the light.
