I-Beads present Lac and Kashmiri beads - handmade traditional Indian beads.
Fall in love with the spring sun and our new tropical Lac and Kashmiri beads
by Indian Artisans. These artists learned their skills from family members who have been creating Lac and Kashmiri products
for generations. Lac insects settle closely on the twigs of certain host trees, suck the plant sap and grow, all the while secreting lac resin from their bodies. Kashmiri bead
, is made of polymer clay (generally marble powder) mixed with hardener and resin (semi-liquid adhesive). Lac and Kashmiri beads are handmade traditional Indian beads
which are embellished with faceted glass chips, rhinestones, seed beads, small brass/metal components and other various accessories. Each individual bead is a unique work of art!
