Bulahan Wood Beads and Seeds
Among all the colorful beads we offer here at Antelope Beads is a collection of beautiful, natural Bulahan ('blessed' in the Filipino language) beads. Predominantly made of wood but also offered in other natural materials, these wooden jewelry beads add a whole new layer of complexity to a piece of beaded jewelry. Bright and rich natural tones are the emphasis of these Bulahan beads, with minimal design work done to the surface of the beads so their natural beauty can show through.
Choose your beads by material, shape or gauge of cord hole and create a warm and natural piece of jewelry that's perfect as an accent piece for your colorful outfits or as a gift. Our Bulahan wood beads are ethically harvested using sustainable practices required by the Filipino government to maintain the special licenses our supplier has to harvest wood. The licenses allow our manufacturer to take live cuttings as well as fallen branches, but they can only do so following the strict sustainable practices the government has put in place. Share your designs with us so we can see the beautiful pieces you create with these unique beads!
