This is a special batch of oud beads requested by KZ to one of his collaborators using material he procured. Initially Kz wanted to spin the beads himself but one of my collaborators laughed at the idea as I would have been a novice craftsman in his eyes and decided to do it for me despite the extra time/effort to cut and polish so many beads. i had requested for all flat beads to conserve material as round beads would have 50% loss as compared to 10% loss on flat beads.
The profile is dark, bitter, woody. good resination, at a great price in gratitude to everyone whom had supported 2088tea in the past year.
the price averages out to $33 usd/gram, which would put a nice good resination agarwood bracelet at only over a hundred dollars plus. a dream come true?
do note that as of all wild woods when spun into beads, there may be occasional ant/bug holes, some irregular shapes, occassional bead chipped edges etc. if you accept this natural phenomena, you’re welcome to make the purchase 🙂
