Item details

I ship within 24 hours ALWAYS! Very high quality wood beads! 25 of these really nice quality olive wood rice beads! They measure approx. 8x6mm and are a staple in my own designs! Ecology friendly, they would be a gorgeous addition to your other handcrafted items. Olive wood comes from the Holy Lands - Israel (Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Nazareth). These have an approx 2mm beading hole

Please note: The photo is just slightly lighter than the actual beads. I wanted to convey the true quality of these beads. My new shipment came in just slightly thicker and shiner - they are truly gorgeous!!


Every year the farmers of the Holy Land pick the olives in the middle of October. During the same season, they cut (prune) some of the branches. People in the Holy Land respect the olive Trees, and never cut them down. The pruning idea is to open the tree to let the sun well light the fruits and the foliage inside. The dark grains inside the trunk of the olive wood is called the heart of the wood or the jewels and the white creamy part is called sap wood.

At times, and during shipping, you will find the oil or sap from the wood has seeped out and your beads may arrive slightly sticky. It is a very easy fix! You can soak them for just a few minutes in hot water then hang to dry. In the sun is best.

In order for me to reimburse or replace your order upon your not receiving the order, ESPECIALLY on international orders you MUST request and pay for signature confirmation, insurance and/or tracking. I cannot be responsible for non-delivery once it leaves my office.

All orders are shipped to Etsy/paypal address. Please make sure the address is correct. Upon purchase from my shop, when the shipping label is printed (within 24 hours unless a Sunday or holiday) you will receive a personal email from Stamps.com with a subject line that reads "BeadWizardry Designs has sent you a package". This confirmation email will have a shipping date and a tracking number (free delivery confirmation to you) for your order. International orders will receive both emails without a tracking number as the cost to provide tracking on these orders is exorbitant. IF you wish to have tracking provided, please convo me for an invoice BEFORE paying for your purchases.

I ship Monday through Saturday (yes, when possible!). Your order will usually ship the same or the next business day of placement. In case of an eCheck (see above) your order will be shipped out as soon as payment clears. Thank you for your understanding.

All orders are shipped either USPS First Class or USPS Priority with FREE tracking on domestic shipments. Please contact me if you have a specific request for other mailing services.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: All customs & other fees imposed by your country are your responsibility to pay when you receive your order. Please remember to consider this part of your cost when you place your order.
