Bring meaning to your style with the Dakota Stones tiger eye 12mm guru bead. This rounded bead features a unique design with three stringing holes. Bring each end of your stringing material through the holes on the sides of the bead and then bring both ends down through the stringing hole at the bottom of the bead.
