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. Lightweight wood beads are hand-cut, hand-waxed and feature a hole size of 5 to 5.5mm. Made from wood derived from a tindalo tree in the Philippines. 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. Can be used with metal grommets. Sizes, shapes and colors may vary with handcrafted items.
