of this guide is to inspire, inform and to acquaint the beading artist with
the incredibly diverse design opportunities offered to them by Keishi.
Keishi pearls are all-nacre pearls produced by shellfish (oysters or
mollusks) during the culturing process, but occurring naturally by an act of
nature not cultured by man as most pearls are.
Keishi are marvelous to create with because of their never-ending diverse
shapes, textures and sizes. With new color enhancing and permanent
coloring techniques now available, Keishi can be had in any color in the rainbow.
Keishi can also be found in many different varieties of shapes. The
newest one is “Corn
Flake Keishi ”. Corn Flake Keishi is very thin and drilled at one

beauty to create a unique, stand out design.
