Our natural-material beads include beads carved from bone, horn, wood, bamboo (a grass), nuts, shells and (occasionally) rocks. Beads made from natural materials make perfect components for a variety of organic, ethnic, exotic and tribal jewelry looks! Some of these beads provide scents, textures and surface patterns only Mother Nature can offer. Many of our wooden and shell beads retain their beautiful woodgrain and opalescent shell shimmers while simultaneously coming in hip, modern shapes that will feel at home in any glamor magazine or metropolitan street. Stand out in the crowd with these natural options, which also include bone hairpipe and perforated (jali) carved beads. Rudraksha beads are popular for making aromatherapy jewelry, while rosewood mala beads are often used to make mala prayer jewelry.
