Buri Beads

As designers we are always looking for new and interesting materials to use. We came across buri beads in our searching and thought they were an interesting product. They are actually nuts that come from the buri tree in the Philippines and are hand shaped. The great thing about them is their versatility. They can stand alone in a design or can be paired with some of the "earthy" looking stones in our collection, particularly jasper. Another nice thing is their price point. We can create nice looking jewelry at a competitive price.

The buri tree is the most common palm tree within the Philippines and has a variety of uses from the buds as vegetables to the stalk used for creating a common alcohol used by locals called tuba. The fiber from the tree is also used in the creating of the famous hats called Baliuag and Lacban seen throughout the Philippines.

We have created one new necklace style using buri beads and it is available in dark teal and plum.

Of course, as our customers, we value your input on the products we create. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment on this blog.
