The 2mm hole size of these organic shaped nugget beads make them perfect for leather cord, silk cord and other larger stringing materials. Made by TierraCast, this bead is made in the USA. The bright gold finish is created with a plating in a 22k gold bath formulated to an 18k gold color with a medium luster. The nuggets shaped faces create an authentic, rustic look in this disc shaped bead.
While heishi (pronounced "hee shee") beads historically were carved from wood or shell, modern heishi beads typically refer to any small, disc shaped beads and are commonly made from pewter or base metal.
