Description

Ebony is a descriptive term that can refer to one or more varieties of dense, dark brown or black hardwoods. Characteristically, ebony woods have a fine, tight wood grain, that takes a very nice polish. Each bead carries a decorative inlay of multi colored abalone (paua) shell on each side for lots of colorful flash. These are the smallest ebony wood inlaid shell beads that we carry. Gifted artisans hand set tiny pieces of natural shell onto these small beads, so please allow for some surface differences and variation between beads. Come on! Let's make something beautiful!

Please note: The color of natural ebony wood can vary from medium brown to black, with or without some banding.

HANDMADE NATURAL WOOD BEADS
These particular beads are handcrafted in the Philippines, coming to you from a family that has 30 years of expertise in making wood beads. Each bead is cut, turned, and polished in their backyard shop. Natural wood, without any additional stain, they will stay beautiful for years to come. I hope you enjoy crafting with them as much as I enjoyed selecting them for you. Come on, let's make something beautiful!

We do take requests for custom orders! Please convo me for more information and provide as much detail as possible. Custom orders may take several weeks to process. In general, custom items may not be returned, with the exception of damage upon receipt which prevents the beads from being used.
Our wood beads are handmade by gifted artisans using wood native to the Philippines. The beads are not dyed or painted. Most of the beads are finished with a light wax polish which is buffed off. The polish helps to protect the wood and give it a nice sheen.

Wood may darken with age as exposed to the natural oils from the skin. And, wood swells and contracts with exposure to moisture, so please take care not to expose your wood beads to large amounts of water. This can cause the wood to split or crack.

To clean or polish your wood beads, use a soft cotton cloth to slowly rub the beads. This will brighten them up in no time!

Care for gemstone beads will vary with the stone type. Please contact me for more specific information.
