This tube-shaped bead is created from natural white mother-of-pearl. Its iridescence and linear design make it an ideal choice for both vintage and contemporary necklace and bracelet designs. String several beads together to create a bold, monochromatic effect, or alternate tube beads with other bead designs to create a texture-rich strand.
Named for its resemblance to the finish and color of pearls, mother-of-pearl beads are made from the hard, iridescent material that forms on the inside of some shells and shellfish.
• Bead sizes and hole sizes are approximate and may vary slightly from bead to bead.
