Faux bone beads

Some faux bone beads I made following Cindy Lietz's tutorial on faux bone technique. The long beads are pipe beads and the larger round ones are drum beads. I used the drum beads in a necklace I designed for a competition. The little ones are spacer beads. The beads are sanded really well and then antiqued to give it that really aged , antique look and they feel warm and satiny smooth to the touch. If you would like to learn this technique visit


  1. Beautiful beads! My girls will be wanting to do this soon.

  2. Do they like jewelry? Beading??
