Bali offers a wide range of different types of beads, but the most famous styles are the Bali sterling silver beads. These are made by hand, with very distinct patterns running around the bead itself. The distinguishing feature of these beads is the granulation and filigree work.
The art of bead making is an ancient art that has been practiced in Bali for hundreds of years. The silver smiths continue to use the same techniques that their ancestors used. Every step is very intricate and time consuming, and every bead is a work of art.
Other countries are starting to imitate Bali beads, but the result is not the same. These machine made versions lack the depth and soul of handmade Bali Sterling silver beads.

Types of Bali sterling silver beads
Bali Sterling silver beads come in many different shapes and sizes. The sizes range from four to eight millimeters in diameter, and the shapes can be almost anything you can imagine. The most common shape is either round or oval, as these fit well when combined with other beads within a necklace or bracelet.
Bali Sterling silver beads have a very unique look, created by various techniques. Some have designs etched in to the silver, while others use wire work and granulation on the outside of the bead. This pattern is then highlighted with oxidization, which creates a contrast with the bright silver, giving a three dimensional effect.
Bali beads can be given various different textures to vary the look. This texture can be achieved with ridges, or indentations for added depth. The silver can be polished to a high shine, or given a matte texture, or even an antique finish.
