These Buri beads are wonderful to look at and touch. I purchased 2 shades of the beads (measuring 1/4" x 3/8" and combined them - a mustard (natural) shade and sienna . They are strung with matte gold glass beads and the necklace is finished with a wonderful Kim Fox Designs double circle slot clasp in bronze.

Buri beads are nuts from the buri tree, a palm native to the Philippines, which are hand-carved into beads that have a smooth finish and are exceptionally lightweight.
