Hi there, just wondering if anyone can help me find Lotus Seed Beads to buy. I have searched high and low on the internet, but with no joy!! I know they must be out there as i have a Zorbitz Pink United Bracelet and you can get them as Mala Bead Necklaces and Bracelets, just can't find them on there own. Hope to hear from someone soon. Thanks. X

Hiya. They are a natural bead and they are the seeds from the Lotus Flower pods. The ones that I am after are white/light cream colour with black specks/dots. I have looked for them under seed beads, but the results come back as the glittery beads, not what I'm after. Hope someone can help!! Cheers. X

I haven't heard of them either, but you could try refining your search on google, make it as specific as possible

e.g beads made from lotus seeds

I did this and found some sites listing Bodhi seed beads, lotus seeds, bead malas etc

If you only google 'seed beads' your search request is too wide

Hi Buddy
Lotus beads are of two kinds....One is from India and the other from China.
From India:It is significant for the religious purpose in India, to praise the Goddess of Money, Lakshmi.The beads are natural and are like dark brown in color.

From China: As far as I know, the beads from China are only for commercial production and are polished so that they give the off white color that you are looking for.
I hope this information may help you....
