Inlay / Beadwork images

As was done traditionally, I do inlay work as well as beadwork
that esthetically creates a beautiful look to enhance
any traditional look of a flute.
I use, at this point, crushed stone for all my inlay work.
Such stone as turquoise, malachite, coral, lapis, jet, jade, agate -
and truly the list can go on. If you chose a certain color,
I am sure I can find a stone to match it.
Searching Bear Flute beadwork is made with glass beads, no plastic!
As you can see, a typical beadwrap is sewn on a tight leather wrap
which in turn is sewn around the flute. Fringe can be incorporated
at an additional cost.
Inlay or beadwork pricing can be found on the Price & Wood Selection page.

Please ask about other designs you may wish to have on your special flute.
