Description

These teeny tusk beads in carved mother of pearl shell would make an unusual addition to a necklace or bracelet for summer festival wear. You might even choose to use them for earrings.

This listing is for 5 pieces that can be strung together, or used to make individual jewelry items.

With their curved shape and pointy tips, each one is about 20mm and comes with a 1mm hole drilled left to right at the top, as you'll see better if you scroll through my photos.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment.

AT A GLANCE
Size: Approx 18-20mm (L) x 5mm (W) at the top
Weight: Less than a gram
Pieces per pack: 5
Colour: Ivory colour with good nacreous irridescence.
Material: Mother of pearl shell, also known as nacre, sourced within Indonesia from budidaya (cultivated or cultured) stocks of the marine mollusc Pinctada Maxima. Not wild harvested.
Shipping: These pieces will ship from Bali via Pos Indonesia registered mail with a tracking number, and you may have to sign for the package on delivery. The beads will be well packaged to protect them in transit and the cost of the pack is included in my shipping fee. Please see my shop policies for more details.
Extra info: Please note that the large operculum used as a styling prop in my photos is not included in your purchase.

BACK STORY
The Indonesian Archipelago, made up of more than 17,000 islands, is the very heart of the Coral Triangle, the global hotspot for marine life.

Coral reefs support almost a quarter of all known marine species, however, some researchers believe that the current rate of extinction in marine species may be outpacing the rate of discovery.

Understanding coral reefs' rich biodiversity - and taking an inventory of its inhabitants - is critical to better understanding how pressures such as overfishing, pollution, ocean warming, and ocean acidification will impact corals and the life they support.

That's why the Bali-based Indonesian Biodiversity Research Center (IBRC) was founded in June 2010 by a group of seven international research institutions.

The Center's goal is not only to increase biodiversity research in Indonesian scientific communities, but also to build lasting research networks between Indonesian and U.S. research centers.

In 2012, Dr. Chris Meyer, IBRC course instructor and Smithsonian scientist, and his team completed a study comparing Bali’s reefs to other biodiversity hotspots around the world.

The result? Dr Meyer reported: “Yes, indeed, this is the most diverse spot on the planet!”

The center’s education and research efforts will support the Coral Triangle Initiative, a six-nation agreement among Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, East Timor and Solomon Islands that focuses on conservation and sustainable development of the marine resources of the designated area.
