Create personalized beauty with Dione® large-hole beads. According to Greek mythology, Dione (dee-OH-nee) is the mother of Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty. Enhance jewelry creations with richly colored rondelle beads. Refined from fast-growing cultivated Taiwanese Cheesewood, each lightweight bead is hand-waxed and non-toxic. The extra-large holes are ideal to use with caprice chain, snake chain, wide leather laces and hemp twine, braided fabric strips, fiber cord and other stringing materials with a wide diameter to increase your design possibilities. Sizes, shapes and colors may vary with handcrafted items. Testing for colorfastness is recommended.
