Very high quality wood beads! 50 of these really nice quality olive wood rice beads! They measure approx. 8x6mm and are a staple in my own designs! Ecology friendly, they would be a gorgeous addition to your other handcrafted items. Olive wood comes from the Holy Lands - Israel (Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Nazareth). These have an approx 2mm beading hole

Please note: The photo is just slightly lighter than the actual beads. I wanted to convey the true quality of these beads. My new shipment came in just slightly thicker and shiner - they are truly gorgeous!!


Every year the farmers of the Holy Land pick the olives in the middle of October. During the same season, they cut (prune) some of the branches. People in the Holy Land respect the olive Trees, and never cut them down. The pruning idea is to open the tree to let the sun well light the fruits and the foliage inside. The dark grains inside the trunk of the olive wood is called the heart of the wood or the jewels and the white creamy part is called sap wood.

At times, and during shipping, you will find the oil or sap from the wood has seeped out and your beads may arrive slightly sticky. It is a very easy fix! You can soak them for just a few minutes in hot water then hang to dry. In the sun is best.
