Each Mactan stone bead is designed and handcrafted by artisans, exclusively for Beads and Honey! This natural fossil stone comes from Mactan Island in the Philippines. It contains impressions of tiny seashells or skeletons embedded in the stone, giving each bead a unique appearance. Coming to you from a family that has 30 years of expertise in making unique wood and artisan beads, careful skill goes into creating each bead. You'll find multi-colored abalone shell inlays that make these beads one-of-a-kind!
