Wood beads are both inexpensive and versatile, and can be used to make casual jewelry for men, women and children. They are great for mixing with other materials to make unique looking jewelry. Beads that are made of wood can have holes drilled of varying sizes, so they can be used on larger cords. Leather is particularly popular with men, as, when it is mixed with wood, it creates a more masculine look.
There are many different types of wood available in Bali, from light colored ones such as bamboo to the darker types like coconut and sono. Each wood brings its own unique look to a design. The grain of each type looks great when given a clear varnish to bring out the natural shine. Another alternative would be to paint the beads with bright colors, for a more playful look.
coconut wood beads
Coconut trees can be found all over Bali, and the husks of the fruit as well as the bark of the trees are used to create a number of different products, from home wares to jewelry. Coconut beads have a very distinct style to them and the grain is particularly intriguing. Beads can be cut to emphasize this grain, and bring out the natural beauty. The color of coconut wood varies according to the age of the tree. From pale tan to a deep, dark brown.
Coconut beads can be made in a number of different shapes, from chunky discs to tusk shapes. These look great when combined with pearls or shell beads in a necklace. This tropical look is a great way to accessorize when wearing a summer dress or beach clothes. These natural beads can be used to create stunning necklaces, bracelets or earrings.
Bamboo is another plant that grows in abundance in Bali. It is easy to grow, and is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. It is used for building materials, home décor as well as jewelry. The bamboo plant grows in long cylinder shapes, and is naturally hollow inside, making it ideal for use as beads.
The color of the bamboo ranges from light mint green to yellow or chocolate brown. It can be spotted, striped or black. Bamboo wood beads are ideal for use in necklaces and bracelets because of its smooth, flat shape which sits perfectly against the wrist or neck. The beads are also very lightweight, making them very comfortable to wear.
As the beads are made from segments of bamboo stalks, the lengths vary and are shaped like a tube. These can be paired with spacer beads to create a pattern on a long necklace. This kind of necklace makes for great beach wear, combined with a bamboo bangle on the wrist.
Wood beads can be painted bright colors, and given any form of design. These bright beads are very popular with children, as they love colorful jewelry. Alphabet beads are a great way to personalize a bracelet or necklace. Children can have a lot of fun creating their own, or their friend’s name, and incorporating it in to a design.
Alphabet beads have letters stamped on all four sides of square shaped beads. These can be simple black and white, or multi colored. Each bead is less than an inch in size, and they can be combined with other wood beads in fun friendship bracelets or colorful necklaces. These are great projects for children to create themselves, and can be worn to brighten up any kind of outfit.
