Patikan is a hard palmwood that grows in the Philippines. The natural grain of the wood has beautiful, parallel black markings, as if it were decorated with a paintbrush. And, the older the tree, the darker the wood. Generously sized at about 20mm, these particular beads are smooth with an understated polish that allows them to retain a very natural and organic appearance. Wood beads look great with a wide variety of metals. Try pairing them with semiprecious stones, shell, bone, and other natural materials. Come on, let's make something beautiful!
Note: The color of patikan wood can vary, and your beads may be slightly lighter or darker than the pictured strands.
