This is a listing for ONE (1) intricately carved baked coral Tibetan focal bead which feature the Dragon and the Phoenix- the Divine Pairing, the quintessential power couple in oriental symbolism. This material is sometimes referred to as 'baked coral.' The body of this ethnic carved focal coral bead is coral which has been carved, dyed, and then baked. These carved baked coral beads are pictured from both sides in photographs #2 and #3 below. From what I can tell, the bead is carved from the top down and then plugged with a piece of bone through which it is then drilled. You can see this in photograph #4 below. The beads are large and very substantial with great detailed carving. I have only seen them once so I grabbed them. Extraordinary ethnic jewelry making supplies presented by ForetTwo.
These beautiful ethnic beads are the ideal focal bead for your next jewelry making project. The beads are elongated barrel shaped. At the time of this listing, there are five (5) of these extraordinary Tibetan beads available. If you wish to purchase more than one, please contact me.
