Spiny Oyster Shell Disk Beads with Candy Color Glass Disk Accents
Gorgeous set of graduated disc beads made from NATURAL color Spiny Oyster shell from Baja Mexico, and my lampworked beads in juicy raspberry pinks with blue shimmery luster that really light up in sunlight. This strand set of beads consists of at least 36 beads.
The Spiny Oyster shell in this set comes from Baja Mexico after harvest and are hand cut and minimally polished. The natural beauty of this material has been used for centuries before coral was available, and was the shell most loved by the Mayan people. Color variations in Spiny Oyster ranges greatly from shades of white, yellow, orange, "rootbeer", coral, dark plum, & raspberry.
This set features tones of orange, "rootbeer" (orange with raspberry), coral and dark plum.
Size range is 1/8"- approx. 6/8", and average a thickness of the shell is 1/8", and glass beads are about 3/16". Hole size is approx. 1/16". Total length of this strand is approx. 5 1/2", great for a bib necklace creation!
