Wood beads provide an organic feel to your beading projects. Wood beads add a natural warmth to sophisticated materials such as freshwater pearls, Swarovski Crystal or gemstone beads. They also look great with other earthy materials such as shell or bone and horn beads. Most of our wooden beads have large holes which makes them great for children's project and for stringing on thicker materials such as leather cord or hemp twine. Wood beads are also instrumental in macrame projects. Be sure to check out our books on macrame and knotting to learn how to create some great hemp and macrame projects!
