Kukui nuts in five wonderful colors!
Kukui nuts are traditionally used to create Hawaiian leis. But, this bead, which is the shell of the seed from the lumbang tree, has a hard and very smooth shell which makes it great for jewelry. The natural color of kukui nuts can be black or brown. I just love our current brown ones with the tiger stripe-like pattern! The beads can also be painted in bright colors like these in red, orange, and green. Enjoy!
Have you ever designed with Kukui nuts?
