These beautiful handmade beads are made from cured Olive Wood, which is a beautiful natural light weight wood. Hailing from Afghanistan, Olive Wood is a common type of bead used to make Malas. Normally you will find brown laminated Olive Wood; these beads are exemplary because each bead on these strands is cut and turned by hand from a solid piece of wood, so they have a consistent look and a great natural feel.

These strands have been dyed a richly gorgeous shade of teal, using all natural dyes. These beads have some variations in color, featuring a lighter aqua-teal alongside the deep teal shades. They are color-fast (the dye is permanent). These beads would make beautiful spacers in earthy-girl jewelry.

15+/-" long strand, individual Olive Wood beads measure approximately 5.5x5mm each. Hole measures approximately 1mm, so they are perfect for using on elastic.

There are approximately 74 beads per strand.
